About I'm a Scientist, Get me out of here!

Every year hundreds of thousands of people tune in to watch the CHRISTMAS LECTURES. This year’s Life Fantastic theme will raise many more questions beyond the lecture titles: Where do I come from? Could I live forever? Am I a mutant?

We are teaming up with the award winning online science engagement event, I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here, to extend the CHRISTMAS LECTURES discussion, by giving everyone all over the world the opportunity to have their questions on Life Fantastic answered by developmental biologists, online.

The site will be open for questions from the very first broadcast of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES on the 28th December, and will run throughout January. Everyone can ask questions, and teachers can book their classes into half hour Live Chats with the scientists.
