Engaging online STEM activity connecting students to scientists across the UK. Using imascientist.org.uk students learn about a variety of STEM careers, how science lessons relate to real life and the different people working in science.
Over two weeks they ASK the scientists anything they want: about their job, detailed science questions, and them as people. Each class has a live CHAT - real-time text based conversations with scientists. For the scientists, it’s a competition. The students vote for their favourite to win. After taking part students are more likely to consider future study and jobs in STEM.
