What’s happening this November?

I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer will be running this November to show school students across the UK and Ireland a slice of real science and engineering.

For two weeks between Monday 7th and Friday 18th November students all over the UK and Ireland will be able to ask questions to, and take part in live text-based chats with real scientists and engineers in the online events. Students then vote for their favourite to win £€500 to spend on further STEM engagement.

The online nature of the event helps to give all students a voice, and encourages students to ask the questions they might not be confident asking in front of the whole class. Students see that scientists and engineers are normal people, while being introduced the wide range of possibilities in STEM careers; it’s not all hard hats and white coats.

All the details of the different themed zones running this November are below, together with links and details of where to apply. For more information on any of the projects running this November, contact admin@imascientist.org.uk, or call +44 (0) 1225 326 892.
