Monday 9th January — Site goes live for students
Please put your profile up as soon as you can. This gives teachers time to introduce the event and do background work. Use this time to play around with the site and see how it works. We will send you a “test” question to make sure everything is working for you.
Thursday 12th January, 3–4pm — Drop-in chat session
We’ll have drop-in chat session on the chat page so come along and say Hi! This is also a great chance to meet each other, meet teachers taking part, ask any questions, and familiarise yourself with the chatroom set up.
Monday 16th January — Event begins
It may be quite quiet for the first couple of days while students log in, but be ready for a rush of questions. We will notify you by email of the live chat sessions booked by teachers. Please respond to say whether you will participate in each live chat.
Tuesday 24th January — First eviction
When polls close the scientist with the FEWEST votes will be evicted. You will be notified by email of the result, good luck! There will be evictions every day for the rest of the week. Scientists will be emailed, and evictions will be announced on the site at 3pm each day, so that it’s before the end of the school day. Evicted scientists will still be able to update their profile and take part in live chats if they want to.
Friday 27th January, 3pm — The final result
The polls close for a final time and we announce the winner of I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here!
