I’m an Events Calendar

I’m a Scientist, I’m an Engineer, I’m a Medic

I’m a ScientistI’m an Engineer and I’m a Medic are online projects which connect school students with real scientists, engineers and healthcare professionals. Over two weeks students ask questions to, and take part in live text-based chats with scientists, engineers and healthcare professionals. 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, engineers and healthcare professionals are normal people, while being introduced to 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.
