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.


What is I’m a Researcher?

I’m a Researcher is based on the long running and award-winning I’m a Scientist project, where school students put their questions to real scientists online. The only difference? I’m a Researcher features academic researchers from all backgrounds. Take a look at the video to get an idea of how the events work.
