Students and scientists in I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! talk about laughing babies, the fate of worms during hurling and good starts to Monday mornings. The last event was enjoyed by teachers, students and scientists alike:
‘We were amazed at how they (students) engaged and really got into the spirit of the event!’ – Teacher, November 2014
‘At times it felt like a mini science conference, only better hours and less mucking about with travel expenses’ – Ciarán O’Brien (scientist), November 2014
If this sounds like something you want to be part of, then…
The next I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! event will run from 9th to 20th November 2015!!

Teachers will get an email in early September asking them to choose their classes’ zones. The event is supported again by Science Foundation Ireland and runs during Science Week. There will be:
The exact list of zones is still being decided and will be announced in the new school year. You can see what an event looks like by checking out the UK version that’s running right now.
UPDATE: 01/09/2015 —————————————————————————
The zones are a mix of themed and general science zones in November, so there will be something for everyone.
- Drug Synthesis Zone – funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry
- Food Science Zone – funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry
- Nanoscience Zone – funded by Science Foundation Ireland
- Nitrogen Zone – general science funded by Science Foundation Ireland
More STEM engagement…
The I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here event will be getting engineers and students talking during the same two weeks. Read all about it, and sign up to take part, here.
