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!
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.
