I’m a Scientist – 1st out is…

It’s been a fantastic event so far and the scientists have worked hard, answering thousands of questions between them. But on Friday there can only be one winner in each zone, so some of them have to go. We are sorry to have to do this to you, but the first scientist to be evicted is… MONICA Thanks so much for all you’ve done. We hope you’ve enjoyed taking part. There will be evictions every day for the rest of the week, with the winner announced on Friday. Keep voting students! Who will walk off with the prize? YOU decide!

Only YOU can save your favourite scientist – evictions start next week!

You’ve all been asking questions like crazy in Quantum Zone and having lots of live chats with our lovely scientists. The site’s almost TWICE as busy as last year (and we thought it was pretty busy then!) We were worried that you’d be wearing out the scientists, but they seem to be loving it. Some of them have said they are now addicted to live chats:-) We hope you are having fun. Remember, you’ve got until Friday 24th June to ASK questions CHAT to scientists And, most importantly, VOTE for who you think should get £500! Don’t forget to ‘like’, and comment on scientists’ answers – otherwise how will they know what sort of answers you want? Remember, this is the event where YOU are in charge.
