I'm a Scientist Get me Out of Here! ....... 11 June

Michelle"I'm a Scientist Get Me Out of Here" bills itself as like school science lessons meet the X factor. The scheme enables school students to talk directly to a chosen panel of 100 scientists over a period of two weeks.


Youngsters are able to ask any questions they like, not just about science, and then vote for the scientist they like the best. Each day the scientists with the fewest votes are knocked off the panel until only one remains.


The 100 scientists taking part have already been shortlisted from hundreds of applicants who were asked to describe their work in one short sentence.


Michelle is delighted to have been chosen to take part. She said:"I am excited at the prospect of taking part but I admit I am a little nervous about it. The contest will give me a great opportunity to find out what young people really think about the question of animals used in scientific research."


FRAME Science Officer Michelle is currently conducting research into the use of non-human primates in medical science which she hopes will lead to a PhD next year.
