UK Research and Innovation is funding I’m a Scientist, Stay at Home!, which is running throughout the summer term until 20 July. The project is enabling school students to engage with active researchers and staff to provide inspiring STEM lessons for students as they are taught at home during the school closures.

Students engage in online text chats where they can ask scientists questions and find out about their work. Students then vote for their favourite researcher at the end. UKRI funding is enabling I’m a Scientist to expand its online platform to reach over 1,200 schools and 140,000 pupils over the summer term.

This is based on the popular and excellent 'I'm a Scientist... Get Me Out of Here!' activity that normally takes place throughout the year.

They're looking for UKRI-funded researchers and staff to take part. It’s a great way for you to hone your communication skills and inspire the next generation about research.
