Taking part in I’m a Researcher gives students the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge across the curriculum for students aged 10 to 18.
Students can meet these Learning Outcomes by engaging with the activity through:
- Reading STEM professionals profiles and preparing questions for them
- Taking part in a live Chat
- Asking follow up questions
- Making an informed voting decision
Studies show that engaging with the activity over multiple interventions is shown to increase students’ aspirations, as well as increase the chance of them meeting multiple outcomes at a deeper level.
By the end of this activity, students will be able to do one or more of these outcomes:Show research skills in reading STEM professionals profiles to construct questions which involve higher order thinkingRecall new STEM content relevant to their current school topicsName at least two STEM related careersEngage in conversations with STEM professionals in an appropriate mannerUse the internet safely by demonstrating appropriate behaviourUse critical thinking to make an informed voting decision
