Kristin: What are scientists really like?
This is a question we tackle during I’m a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here, two weeks of online madness in which scientists and school students chat and ask/answer questions about science in life. Bridge8 held the Australian pilot in June this year, based on the UK initiative which has been running since 2008.
In 2010, Stephen Curry, Professor of Structural Biology at Imperial College, London was voted winner of the Imaging Zone in the UK June round, winning £500 which he put towards the making of this great short film, interviewing six scientists about what they do.
Stephen says “As you will see, these scientists are thoughtful, funny and enthusiastic people who, like me, would like to invite you into the world of science to have a look around. The film was made with teenage school-children in mind but I hope it will also appeal to other students, teachers and the general public, and maybe even to other scientists.”
Enjoy and share!
