Engage school students with your research from your desk!

I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here http://imascientist.org.uk/scientists is an online STEM engagement competition that gets people in science talking with curious school students. The STFC are funding Particles Zone and Space Zone https://imascientist.org.uk/2019/03/june-2019-zones/, both taking place 10-21 June  – and researchers funded by, or using data from, the STFC get priority in this oversubscribed event.

“After my first live chat I was hooked! The enthusiasm of the students was inspiring, and some of the questions were incredibly thought-provoking”
