If you’re a scientist or an engineer keen to been involved in outreach events, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.
Between June 15th and the 26th you can be a part of answering students’ questions and engage directly with them in live text-based chats. After these chats have taken place, students will vote for their favourite researcher to win £500, which can be spent on future public engagement. Public engagement and outreach events are great to be involved in, you can learn vital skills from interacting with the public and gain confidence in your own research. They provide a fantastic chance to gain a fresh perspective on your research from the younger generation, which may raise interesting questions and debates. Furthermore, being involved will be a rewarding experience as you inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
If you would like to be involved, then you can visit either the ‘I’m a Scientist’ website or alternatively you can also visit the ‘I’m an Engineer’ website for more information. Find a full list of zones that are planned to run in each of the events please select from the list below:
Once you are ready to start your application, you can apply for either the ‘I’m a Scientist’ event and the ‘I’m an Engineer’ event . The deadline for applications is Sunday 3rd May.
