From 18th September I will be taking part of “I’m A Scientist, Get Me Of Here” for a few months. I took part in the space exploration zone in March 2017, which was great fun to interact with so many schools and students.
“A free online event where school students meet and interact 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.”
This time I will be in the career zone which is aimed more at students asking about their future and scientific careers. The students get the chance to ask the experts questions but also to speak directly through live chats.
