Students have been busy asking lots more sporty questions this week. Including….

The science of:

Question of the week in the 7-11 Zone came from student hpollard: “Do you think a humans health is as important as a animals?

And in 11-19 Zone, student harryholt123 asked: “how long can the human body run before colapse?

 

In live chats, 7-11 Zone students have been asking anything from “why does the heart beat?” to “what’s the most gruesome thing you’ve ever tested?” While 11-19 Zone students and scientists have been chatting about: “what is the best dish to improve their athletic performance?” and “how long can humans survive without trees?”

Both students and teachers got a kick out of the live chat. 11-19 Zone Student ellascientist said:

hiya scientists, thanks alot for the great answers to our mind boggling questions”

and teacher Liz Nicholson said:

“probably the best moments today since I started teaching. The engagement excitement & motivation of students was immense”

We’ve now selected most of the scientists, so find out who’s In the 7-11 Zone and who’s in the 11-19 Zone and when!

 

There’s still space for teachers to book live chats in weeks so BOOK NOW to make sure your students get to talk to the In the Zone scientists.
