I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! Live puts five scientists on stage to compete for audience votes by answering the public’s burning science questions. Whichever topics you’d like to be talked about, we can work with you to find enthusiastic experts in their field who are keen to engage the public with their work.
The event is based on the successful online format, where school students take part in live online chats with scientists and vote for their favourite. The live format takes advantage of the public’s curiosity, allowing them not only to engage with the scientists but to decide for themselves the best science communicator.

Update: The most recent I’m a Scientist Live event was on antibiotics and antimicrobials, at the Royal Society of Chemistry in November 2013: about.imascientist.org.uk/2013/ias-live-antibiotic-awareness-day
We can run this exciting and interactive event with ease, providing a presenter, scientist recruitment and briefing, voting cards and trophy. You just need to provide a venue and audience. It’s perfect for science festivals, academic conferences or awareness weeks.
The package – what we’re offering
Based on your particular event requirements we will work with you to find five suitable and passionate scientists to take part. We will not only organise the logistics of their attendance but also ensure they are fully briefed beforehand.
As part of our package we will send you all of the materials necessary to run the event effectively. This will include coloured voting cards, winner’s trophy, runner up prizes and golden envelope. And the MC will do all of the rest…
MC and scientist briefing on the night
Helen Arney, experienced science communicator and MC, will be booked for the event to brief the scientists, warm up the audience and lead the show, ensuring the audience have both an entertaining and informative experience.
The cost of an I’m a Scientist Live event varies from £1,000 for a less formal event up to £2,500 for a high-production value formal ticketed event, and of course the exact price will depend on your requirements.
