I’m a Scientist is an online activity where school students connect with scientists. It’s an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where students are the judges.
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.
And I’m a scientist is on RIGHT NOW! So why not send your students to the I’m a scientist website to check out what questions are being asked.
This week there are loads of zones including:
- Memory Zone — a psychology zone
- Epidemic Zone
- Fast Computing Zone
- Sleep Zone
- Sustainability Zone — specifically for primary schools
- General Science Zones
And if you get inspired to sign up to I’m a Scientist’s event in March, just hold your horses, we’ll have information up about that very soon….
