I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! Space Zone
I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! comes to Ireland
Free science engagement event! I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here!
This a free online event where school students get to meet and interact with scientists, and it’s coming to Ireland. It’s a bit like X Factor, where the scientists are voted off by the students, based on how well they answer their questions.
What is it?
The event is split into ‘zones’ – groups of 5 scientists and students. There’ll be Space and Health themed zones, which scientists researching the themes and a broad range of scientists in the general Hydrogen Zone.
The scientists in each zone are pitted against students over 2 weeks. They have intense quick-fire live chats, students ask the scientists anything they want and then vote for their favourite scientist to win the grand prize of €500 to spend on communicating their work.
“I kept finding that I’d ask a question, and they’d give me an answer, and then I’d have loads more questions, and then more, and then more!” – Student
It’s taking place online from 12th – 23rd November as part of Science Week Ireland and Dublin City of Science 2012. For more info
