“I’m a Scientist, Get me out of Here!” is the “overwhelming” winner of the People’s Choice Award for Science Engagement, given to us by Sciencewise and Involve! We got all dressed up to collect the award at their London prizegiving yesterday. It looks very proud in our office, and when the sun comes out, it might even shine!
Sophia took the microphone and after giving thanks to the Wellcome Trust, explained how it was the passion and dedication of the people who took part in the event, that made it a success and who voted for us to win the award. The event would have been nothing without you teachers and scientists. Thank you.
Huge thanks also to Sciencewise and Involve for their recognition of our project. We hope the boost to the profile of the event will help it become an established science dialogue event in the near future.
