Key Dates

By Friday 25th October

Make sure you’ve logged into the site by this date to fill in your profile and respond to live chat invitations.

Monday 28th October

Profiles must be completed by this date.

Site goes live and students will begin logging in to read about your work and send you questions via ASK. Make sure everything is working for you by answering their questions (and the ‘test’ question we send) when you can.

Thursday 7th November, 3-4pm

Test out the live chat in our drop-in session in the staffroom.

It’s a good time to meet the other researchers in your zone and the teachers taking part. We’ll be around to answer any questions you have.

Monday 11th November

Marks the start of the event! Questions will start coming thick and fast this week, and you’ll be getting reminders via email of the live chat bookings. Please comment on each booking to say if you can or cannot attend.

Thursday 14th November, 7-8pm

We open every zone for students to log in from home and take part in a special evening live chat. Students are encouraged to join in with their families and friends, who can also ask you questions.

This a great opportunity to increase parental engagement. You’re welcome to drop in and out during the hour, and we would love for as many researchers as possible to join us.

Thursday 21st November, 7-8pm

We open the zones for another parental engagement opportunity, where students get to log in from home and take part in a special evening live chat.

Friday 22nd November

The final live chat takes place, 12-3pm today! It’s an open chat where researchers and students can drop in and out. It may be busy, it may be quiet, but it’s certainly a chance to gain a few extra votes!

At 3pm the voting closes and the winners of I’m a Researcher, Get me out of here! are announced.
