In the Zone student winners!

 

Throughout the 11 weeks In the Zone, students have been actively asking questions and having high energy live chats and now it’s time to say well done to the student winners in both zones.

 

Moderators and scientists have nominated students who asked loads of interesting questions and engaged really well in live chats and comments. The winners get a £20 WH Smiths voucher and a certificate. We’ve also listed the runners up in each zone, who participated really well.

 

And the student winners are:

A big thanks to all the students for asking so many questions, you’ve definitely put the scientists through their paces!
