I’m a Researcher is an online activity where school students connect with academic researchers. It’s a competition between the researchers, where students are the judges.
Students challenge the researchers over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK the researchers anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite to win a prize of £500 to engage the public with their research
From 4 to 15 October 2021, school students connected with historians and activists to learn about the figures that helped shape the modern-day UK, through the UK Black History Zone.
I’m History, Get me out of here asked students to explore Black British history – learn about The Ivory Bangle Lady, whose ‘high-status’ burial ground has taught us about the diversity of Roman York, or William Cuffay, the man who fought for the political rights of the working classes in the Victorian period.
