I'm a scientist... no, really!

Some great news this morning - I've been asked to take part in the I'm a Scientist, get me out of here! event in March.

According to the organisers, I'm a Scientist is "an award-winning science enrichment and engagement activity, funded by the Wellcome  Trust. It takes place online over a two  week period. It’s an X Factor-style competition for scientists, where students are the judges. Scientists and students talk online on the website. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn. But only the students get to vote".

I think this is a really great idea and I'm really looking forward to taking part. I'll keep you posted on how things go right here. The event runs from March 14th - 25th. The video below gives a flavour of what's involved.

Well done Eoin,

Was hoping to get my pupils involved but it's right in the middle of our term exams. I'm sure you will be brilliant in the role (although you may need to soften your cork accent for kids across the pond - LOL)!
