We thought, to make things a touch easier, or harder depending on how much you like to be prepared and know what you’re up against, we’d upload a couple of recordings of the live chats.
It might help to give you an idea of what will be involved when you take part in them. We picked these at random, based on age groups – not ability, so they’re reasonably varied.
Of course, if you prefer the element of surprise, don’t watch them. As all scientists who’ve taken part will tell you, it doesn’t matter what you’re told or how much preparation you’re given. Nothing will prepare you for the actual thing.
These chats below use the older format but still give you an idea of how the interaction works.

What is I’m a Scientist?
It’s a 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.
