The students asked scientists all sorts in this November’s I’m a Scientist, ranging from mayflies short life-span to dark matter. There was even a debate about what could happen if artificial intelligence ruled the world. And we also got some great feedback:
‘I think you have inspired me to become a scientist” – student, November 2015
If this sounds up your street, you’ll be pleased to hear there is another chance to take part in during British Science Week:
The next I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here event will run from the 7th to the 18th March 2016!
Teachers register by Sunday 24th January at: imascientist.org.uk/teachers
Scientists apply by Sunday 24th January at: imascientist.org.uk/scientist-apply
Teachers will get an email in January asking them to choose their classes’ zones.
The zones are a mix of themed and general science zones in March, so there will be something for everyone.
- Biochemistry Zone – funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Biochemical Society
- Climate Change Zone (a primary school only zone) – funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry
- Fat Zone – funded by Wellcome Trust
- Gravity Zone – funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council
- Medical Physics Zone – funded by Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and the Insitute of Physics
- Toxicology Zone -funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry
We also have the following general science zones, named after elements and including scientists from different backgrounds:
- Iridium Zone – funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council
- Platinium Zone – funded by Wellcome Trust
- Gold Zone – funded by Wellcome Trust
During the same two weeks in March we’ll also be running I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here. Read more about that here…
