I'm a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!
Monday, June 13th 2011


Imagine having an eclectic group of scientists at your disposal to ask any question you like. This is exactly what the ‘I’m A Scientist, Get Me Out Of Here’ project offers to approximately 8000 UK school children. Sponsored by The Welcome Trust, With 100 scientists from a wide range of disciplines from quantum physics to ecology, in 23 different zones, Sue Carney represents forensics in the forensic science zone, along with 4 other scientists. The format includes live web chats and questions, which the scientists answer in their own time, posting replies on the ‘I’m A Scientist’ site. There’s also a competition involved: The winning scientist from each zone receives £500 to spend on science communication and the winners are voted for by the children taking part.

"This is a great opportunity to show young people what it’s really like to work in science and maybe we’ll inspire the scientists of the future."
