Evening online chat with scientists and engineers – Thursday 15th March, 7-8pm
This term, some of our students have been meeting & chatting with real scientists or engineers in their lessons using the I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer websites. In this online activity, they have conversations about what it’s like to work in STEM. Families are invited to join their children as they talk with the scientists and engineers from home in this moderated chat.
We hope you’ll enjoy making use of this exciting opportunity. Students need login cards (see Mrs Caw if interested); go to imascientist.org.uk or imanengineer.org.uk to join in.
