I'm a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!
Three researchers from Leeds are taking part this month in 'I'm a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!', an X Factor-style competition between scientists where school students are the judges.
Students challenge the scientists over intense, fast-paced online live chats. They then 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.
The event runs from 11-22 March 2013, and the following Leeds researchers are taking part:
Tom Branson - Drug Development Zone
Nik Watson - Food Science Zone
Kathryn McMahon - Technetium Zone
