I'm a Scientist, Get me out of here!
I'm a Scientist is a free event where school students get to meet and interact with scientists online.
Your students challenge the scientists over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK the scientists anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
Students see that scientists are normal people, learn that science lessons relate to real life, and become more enthused about science.
