Announcement: Zones for June

The next I’m a Scientist event, in June, will be the biggest ever. Wondering what zones we’ll have? Well wonder no more!

Themed zones

Sports Science Zone
Quantum Zone (sponsored by the Institute of Physics)
Microbiology Zone
Marine and Underwater Science Zone
Healthy Ageing Zone (sponsored by Research Councils UK)
Genes Zone
Forensic Science Zone
Evolution Zone
Energy Generation Zone
Ecology Zone
Brain Zone

General Zones


Themed zones will have scientists who all work on something related to the topic of the zone. The topics were mainly chosen by teachers, because we believe in listening to our participants as much as possible. General zones will have a mix of scientists, from all different areas of science.

We’re particularly excited about our two sponsored zones – Quantum Zone (all about very very small things), sponsored by the Institute of Physics, and Healthy Ageing (all about research into living healthily and happily as we get older), sponsored by Research Councils UK and their friends at the Lifelong Health and Wellbeing Research Programme.

We’re also very grateful to Kerboodle, the personalised online learning service for teachers and students, for their support and sponsorship.

And, as always, enormously grateful to the lovely Wellcome Trust, who provide the bulk of our funding. We couldn’t do it without them!
