What’s happening this November?

I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer are returning this November to show school students across the UK and Ireland a slice of real science and engineering. We are also running I’m a Medic for schools in the East Midlands, introducing students to the range of careers in primary healthcare and General Practice.

For two weeks between Monday 6th and Friday 17th 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, engineers and healthcare professionals in the online events. Students then vote for their favourite to win £500/€500 to spend on further STEM engagement.

This November we’re also launching a brand NEW project: 25 Genomes: Mapping Nature’s Code, in partnership with the Wellcome Sanger Institute. 25 new genomes are being decoded by the Institute to mark its 25th anniversary, and they want your students to choose 5 of them.

All the details of the different events 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 michaela@mangorol.la, or call 01225 326 892.
