UKRI supporting pupils to engage with cutting-edge science online


With schools closed to most pupils because of coronavirus, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is supporting young people to stay connected with each other and enjoy inspiring science lessons through a free, safe online platform, I’m a Scientist, Stay at Home!

  • UK Research and Innovation is providing funding to I’m a Scientist, Stay at Home!, a unique online platform enabling school students to engage with STEM research during the school closures
  • The project aims to reach 150,000 school students in over 1,200 schools and involve over 1,000 researchers across the UK

I’m a Scientist provides a safe, moderated space for students to be inspired by science through conversations with active research staff. UKRI funding is enabling I’m a Scientist to expand its existing online platform to reach 150,000 students in over 1,200 schools. It will also involve over 1,000 researchers across the UK, many of whom are employed or funded by UKRI and the Research Councils.
