Thanks to Science Foundation Ireland I’m a Scientist is back this November during Science Week, with four zones bringing together students and scientists from all over the country. We’re looking for scientists to take part in the following zones:
- Nanotechnology Zone (funded by IOP) – Very very very small stuff! Manipulating molecules and atoms for all sorts of molecular scale science and engineering, nanotechnology is used in computing, sensors, materials and it even has biomedical applications
- Space Zone (with funding from ESERO Ireland) – From stars and planets to black holes and cosmic radiation, this zone covers it all. Exploring the existence of dark matter, the effects of gravity, atronaut psychology and volcanoes on Mars, there’s something for everyone!
2 general zones, including a mix of 5 scientists from all areas of science:
- Helium Zone
- Lithium Zone
