I’m an Events Calendar

I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer

I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer are online projects which connect school students with real scientists and engineers. Over two weeks students ask questions to, and take part in live text-based chats with scientists and engineers. 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.

This page lists all the dates currently confirmed I’m a… events in the UK and Ireland. Themed zones will be announced nearer the events. Keep a look out for new events and projects being added, and occasional special events running throughout the year.
