Public Engagement at Manchester

I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! is back for June. See who from Manchester is involved…

I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! is back from Monday 16 to Friday 27 June.

School students will get to meet and interact with scientists in an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges.

There will be 12 themed zones and five general zones – that’s 85 scientists talking with students from nearly 120 different schools from all around the UK, from Inverness all the way down to St Austell in Cornwall.

But who from the The University of Manchester, is taking part?

In the Diamond Zone … Phillip Manning, School of Earth, Atmospheric & Environmental Sciences: Palaeobiology – “I dig-up very dead things and try and unpick their biology, morphology and mode of preservation.”

In the Infectious Diseases Zone … Peter Elliott, FLS – “I find out how bacteria cause food poisoning”

In the Vision Zone … Michael Kelly, FLS, “I investigate how humans see in the dark or when dazzled by bright lights.”
