Big data season

Big Data season - 10-21 March 2014. WavebreakMedia
Online with: 'I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here' team

We are teaming up with the 'I'm a Scientist, Get me out of here' website team, during our BBSRC anniversary year, to deliver a season of six online zones focusing on big data – whilst providing an online event where school students get to meet and interact with scientists.

Question the scientists

Students challenge the scientists over intense, fast-paced online live chats. They then ask the scientists all the questions they want to, and vote for their favourite scientist to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public. If you are a researcher who would like to take part in this season of events please sign up.

The big data season will help students understand what big data and computational biology mean for the future of bioscience research and their own potential biology careers.
