I'm a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!
I’m a Scientist, Get me out of Here! is an award-winning science enrichment and engagement activity that has been running in the UK for four years and in Australia for two. It’s an Australian Idol-style competition for scientists, where students are the judges. Students ask the scientists questions through forums and live chats and the scientists answer. Then students vote until the scientists are evicted one by one until there is a winner who receives $1,000 to spend on public outreach. The program provides materials for teachers and scientists and the website is open for the public to view.
