Students interact with real scientists online and learn about How Science Works. It engages students who aren’t usually interested in science because it’s real and they get a say in which scientist gets the £500 prize money. Students can Ask, Chat and Vote!
The event is very flexible. For your students to get the most out of the event we recommend spending 2-3 lessons on it.
Most students who take part are KS3 (Year 8-9) but it works for students in Year 7 up to post 16 students too. We now run zones just for Year 5 & 6 Primary students, too.
The event itself lasts for 2 weeks, but the site will be online for two weeks beforehand so that you can do the background work.
We normally run 3 main events a year; in November, March and June. But register now and we’ll let you know about any other events we run throughout the year.
I’m a Scientist is designed to help teachers deliver the How Science Works (HSW) curriculum and bring real science to life for your students.
Only students with our registration cards can log in. We only send these out once a teacher has registered. All online contented is strictly moderated to protect students’ identities and information.
