‘I am a Scientist Get Me Out of Here’

29 Sep 2016

CDT students Laura Finney and Jonathan Hunter participated in ‘I am a ‘Scientist Get Me Out of Here’ initiative.


I'm a Scientist is an online outreach competition, funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry, where scientists talk about their work with curious school children all over the UK. The students interact with scientists by challenging them through a fast-paced text-based live conversation and then select their favourite scientists.  Both Laura and Jonathan were voted the bests scientists in their respective areas, catalysis and antibiotics, and each won £500 prize money for future outreach endeavours.


Taking part was an exciting opportunity for both Laura and Jonathan to further develop their communication skills, gain a fresh perspective on their work and raise students’ awareness of careers in Chemistry.
