• Students talk with scientists

    ASK CHAT VOTE I'm a Scientist science education activity

    A free online program where school students meet and interact with scientists. It’s an American Idol-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges.

    Students challenge the scientists over fast-paced online text-based live CHATs. They ASK the scientists anything they want, and VOTE for their favorite scientist to receive $500 to communicate their work with the public.

    The most recent event took place between April 25 and May 6.

    We’re ran two Zones. A soil science zone and a general science zone.
