The students are asking scientists all sorts in this June’s I’m a Scientist, ranging from shark’s immune systems to explaining ‘Brain Freeze‘ and even a question about the electromagnetic field of humans that started a passionate twitter debate between physicists. There’s also been some great feedback:
‘The best thing that they (students) have seen is that scientists are normal people who like pizza, but are also really into finding things out. Actually quite like the students, really.” – Teacher, June 2015
If this sounds up your street, you’ll be pleased to hear there is another chance to take part this year:
The next I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here event will run from the 9th to the 20th November 2015!!
Teachers register by Sunday 20th September at: imascientist.org.uk/teachers
Scientists apply by Sunday 27th September at: imascientist.org.uk/scientist-apply
Teachers will get an email in early September asking them to choose their classes’ zones.
The zones are a mix of themed and general science zones in November, so there will be something for everyone.
- Ageing Zone – funded by The Physiological Society
- Spectroscopy Zone – funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry
- Extreme Pressure Zone – funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council
- Heart Zone – funded by Wellcome Trust
We also have the following general science zones, named after elements and including scientists from different backgrounds:
- Tantalum Zone – funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council
- Tungsten Zone (A primary school only zone) – funded by Wellcome Trust
- Rhenium Zone – funded by Wellcome Trust
During the same two weeks in November we’ll also be running I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here. Read more about that here…
