About I’m a Scientist

I’m a Scientist is like school science lessons meet the X Factor! School students choose which scientist gets a prize of £500 to communicate their work.

Scientists and students talk on this website. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn. But only the students get to vote.

This zone is the Space Zone. It has a range of scientists studying all different topics. Who gets the prize? YOU decide!

The Space Zone is sponsored by the Institute of Physics, paving the way for all manner of space–related discussions, from satellites and cosmology to astrophysics.
