Who’s been evicted so far?

It’s the final countdown! With at least two evictions in each zone- and in some, three- the end is drawing close for this round of I’m A Scientist, Get Me Out of Here! But that just means things are getting really exciting! Our scientists still want your questions- and votes- so keep sending them to us, students, and we’ll announce our winners this Friday. Nonetheless, we’d like to thank all our scientists for taking part. Just because some have been evicted doesn’t mean that they’re completely gone. You can still check out their profiles, and read their answered questions. And remember you can still leave comments for each scientist in their zone. Check out our evicted scientists here- remember the answers, the science, the laughs- and maybe leave them a message!

What a week!

Hi everyone! What an exciting week we have had; hundreds of live chats and questions flying in from every direction! We have been super-busy reading and replying to all of your questions, remember that you can comment on them too. Just go to the zone that you asked your question in and comment on the scientists answers as much as you like! You can also post questions for the scientists there as well. We hope that you have enjoyed the first week as much as we have and are looking forward to Monday; remember though if you want your favourite scientist to stand a chance of winning you need to VOTE by Tuesday! Who will win? Only YOU decide!

Who are the scientists taking part in IAS June 2010?

Fanfare! We have now finally chosen all the scientists to take part in I’m a Scientist, Get me out of Here! June 2010. Here they are, for your delight and delectation… It’s been absolutely excruciating. We’ve had to turn down some fantastic sounding scientists doing fascinating work. Sadly we only have a finite amount of space! If any more funders would like to come forwards (err, hint!) then maybe we can manage more next year… I’m a Scientist was recently described* as ‘the world’s most stunningly innovative teen science education program’ and this will be the biggest event we’ve ever run. In June we will have 100 scientists, engaging with 400 classes and 8,000 students. These scientists will be involved in making history! How were these scientists chosen? We truly believe in listening to our users and that this makes the project much stronger. All scientists who applied wrote a … Continue reading

In the Brain zone Mariana was voted off, in the Genes zone Chris was the one with the least votes, Pamela was eliminated from Hydrogen, Emily from Helium and Sarah lost out in the Lithium zone.
