Online STEM engagement competitions – I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer – back for November

by | Sep 6, 2018

What are I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer?
Online events where school students get to meet and interact with scientists/engineers. It’s an X Factor-style competition between scientists/engineers, where the students are the judges. Students challenge the scientists/engineers over fast-paced online live CHATs. They ASK the scientists/engineers anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite scientist/engineer to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
