I'm a Scientist and I'm an Engineer
I'm a Scientist and I'm an Engineer will be running during British Science Week this March to show school students a slice of real science and engineering.
For two weeks between Monday 6th and Friday 17th March students all over the UK will be able to ask questions to, and take part in live text-based chats with real scientists and engineers in the online events. Students then vote for their favourite to win £500 to spend on further STEM engagement.
The online nature of the events help to give all students a voice, and encourages s
tudents to ask the questions they might not be confident asking in front of the whole class. Students see that scientists and engineers are normal people, while being introduced the wide range of possibilities in STEM careers; it's not all hard hats and white coats.
The events are totally free for state-maintained, UK schools and I'm a Scientist, has special zones just for primary schools. All materials and resources are provided including suggested lesson plans and adaptations.
