Update on 2 I’m a Scientist events in June 2012

After barely catching our breath after the March I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer events we’re straight into planning the next events in June.

We’re running 2 I’m a Scientist events back to back in June 2012 because, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and different term dates in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, there’s no fortnight that fits everyone.

The June dates are:

‘Amsterdam’ event: 11th – 22nd June

‘Los Angeles’ event: 25th June – 6th July

For anyone wondering what the names ‘Amsterdam’ and ‘Los Angeles’ are about, rather than simply naming them events 1 and 2, or A and B, we’ve had a bit more fun.

The 2 events in June will be the 9th and 10th I’m a Scientist events we’ve run since the first in 2008. Seeing as 2012 is the year of the London Olympics and Paralympics the events are named after the 9th (Amsterdam) and 10th (Los Angeles) Olympic Games. This should make it easier to differentiate between the 2 June events.

We will run around 20 zones split between the 2 events. The Amsterdam event will probably have fewer zones than the larger Los Angeles event.

We haven’t decided what zones we’ll run yet, but there will be a mix of general zones with a broad range of scientists, and themed zones.

Teachers should specify which event they want to take part in when they apply. We’ll ask scientists nearer the time when we’ve decided on the zones.
