Who? Anyone! We’re also particularly looking for scientists for themed zones: Animal Behaviour, Earth, Genes, Laser, Materials, Nanotechnology & Organs.
I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! is an online event where students get to meet and interact with real scientists. It’s an X Factor-style competition between the scientists, where students are the judges. Scientists answer questions from the students on anything and everything and have live online Facebook-style chats with the students, developing communication skills. The students vote for their favourite scientist, who wins £500 to spend on science communication.
I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! – June 2012
We are running the main event twice this summer. The first will run from June 11th to June 22nd, the second from June 25th to July 6th, to give more schools a chance to take part. There will be general zones with a broad mix of scientists and themed zones from Animal Behaviour to Nanotechnology , the full list is here: imascientist.org.uk/2012/04/apply-now-to-take-part-in-june-2012-events.

I’m a Scientist, In The Zone! – any week from NOW until July 6th
I’m a Scientist, In the Zone! is designed to compliment the Wellcome Trust’s In the Zone science investigation kits, inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. We’re looking for scientists studying the mind and body in motion, from the nutritional needs of marathon runners, to the bioengineering of knee replacements and the psychology of teamwork. We are running 7-11 Primary and 11-19 Secondary school Zones from April 23rd to July 6th. Scientists can sign up now and select their available weeks. Students can ask scientists questions, read scientists’ answers and vote through to the end of the event.
