Get your students enthused about science
I’m a Scientist, Get me out of Here! is an online event where yours students meet and interact with real scientists. It’s an Australian X-Factor-style competition between the scientists, where your students are the judges.
Students submit questions which the scientists will try to answer by the next day. Students then have live online Facebook-style chats with the scientists, where they ask questions, learn more about the scientists, and let scientists know their opinions. It takes place online over a two week period.
Our next event runs from 26th August – 6th September 2013 when scientists and students will be interacting online in general and themed scientific zones.
If you would like to participate in our forthcoming event or one of our future events, you can submit an expression of interest on behalf of your school now (years 5-12 welcome)!

Students interact with real scientists online and learn about Science as a Human Endeavour. It engages students who aren’t usually interested in science because it’s real and they get a say.
How much time?
The event is very flexible. For your students to get the most out of the event we recommend spending at least 2-3 lessons.
Students who take part are in Years 6-12, aged 11-18 years.
The event itself lasts for 2 weeks, but the site will be online for two weeks beforehand so that you can do the background work.
We normally run 2 main events a year; in March and August. But register now and we’ll let you know about any other events we run throughout the year.
I’m a Scientist is designed to help teachers deliver the Science as a Human Endeavour curriculum and bring real science to life for your students.
Only students with our registration cards can log in. We only send these out once a teacher has registered. All online contented is strictly moderated to protect students’ identities and information.
