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."
