I’m a Scientist is an online, student-led STEM enrichment activity. It connects school students with scientists through energetic real-time text based chats. I’m a Scientist engages all students. It supports their Science Capital through showing STEM to be personally relevant to students lives; eliciting and valuing students’ questions and experiences, and providing support for building dimensions of science capital.
We feel that taking part can play an important role in helping young people see that science just might be ‘for me’!
