Psychology Students Put Scientists Through Their Paces


Sixth form students at JBVI will quiz scientists from across the UK later this week when they take part in an online event aimed at getting students excited about science.

‘I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here’ sees students putting scientists through their
paces in online live chats in which they can ask the experts about anything,
from climate change to coding.

On Friday, the group of Y12 psychology students will be discussing the topic of relationships.

It’s a free X Factor-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges.

Students challenge the scientists over intense, fast-paced, online live chats. Then they ask the scientists all the questions they want to, and vote for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.

The aim of the event is to get students excited about science. Students can see that scientists are normal people and learn that science lessons relate to real life.
