Ferndown Middle School was lucky enough to gain a place for ‘I’m a Scientist Get Me Out of Here’ This is an online event where pupils get to meet and interact with real scientists in the form of an X factor-style competition between the scientists. Pupils from year 5, 6 and 7 chatted to the scientists during the live chat session, where they asked questions about the scientist’s life and their work or about any aspect of science. The students then voted for the best scientist. The pupils fully engaged with this experience and asked some interesting questions. They were particularly thrilled when a scientist congratulated them on asking great questions.
