“I’m a psychologist, get me out of here!”

04 March 2019

Twelve psychologists face a fight for survival when they take part in I’m a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here.

In this X Factor-style online competition between scientists, students are the judges. The scientists are voted out of the zone one by one, based on their answers to students’ questions, until only the winner remains.

The BPS is sponsoring two zones – Perception and Relationships – in the popular science education event.

Dr Daniel Jolley from Staffordshire University, who won the BPS-sponsored Society zone last June, said:

“Taking part in I’m a Scientist was so much fun. The chats were lively, but also addictive! Thirty minutes went by so quickly. They were also so varied – chatting to Year 12 one moment and then moving to Year 6. It took all my ability to ensure I was communicating at the right level and that everyone felt included in the conversations.”

The psychologists taking part in our zones from 4-15 March are:

Perception zone

  • Jane Aspell, Anglia Ruskin University
  • Tirso Gonzalez Alam, University of York
  • Matthew Longo, Birkbeck, University of London
  • Alex Quigley, National Health Service
  • Dawn Rose, Lucerne University of Applies Sciences and Arts
  • Vassilis Sideropoulos, London South Bank University

Relationships zone

  • David Chadwick, University of Kent
  • Lucy Maddox, Clinical Psychologist
  • James Munro, Edinburgh Napier University
  • Louise Rodgrs, Graduate Psychologist
  • Dan Taylor, University of Sunderland
  • Sally Tilt, Prison Psychologist

Follow the action from 4 March on the I’m a Scientist website.
