I'm a Scientist, Get me out of here!

Mangorolla CIC

I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! is a free, online event where school students get to meet and interact with real scientists. 

Students login during a 2 week period to ASK the scientists anything they like. Students challenge the scientists over a fast-paced online live CHAT during a lesson. 

The event is a competition between scientists and the students are the judges; students VOTE for their favourite scientist to win the event.

All resources and support are provided for teachers to facilitate this event. It's student-led nature makes it appropriate for students of all abilities from Year 5-13.
