I'm a Scientist is a free online event where school students meet and interact with scientists. It’s an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges.

Students challenge the scientists over fast-paced online text-based live chats. They ask the scientists anything they want, and vote for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.

It runs for two weeks, three times a year; in March, June and November. Apply now to take part in the June event!
