Thank you so much students! I had an absolutely incredible two weeks and your energy, curiosity and genuine enthusiasm are what made it such a brilliant experience. I loved logging in to discover so many inspired new questions each day. We had a little bit of everything – from comets to black holes to alien life – and I had so much fun answering every single one.
Live chats were probably my favourite part of the whole event. Guaranteed to be a little crazy – manic typing, rapid-fire questions and so many laughs – they always left me with a huge smile on my face. Some of your questions really got me thinking, and it was brilliant to see things from a different perspective. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
Thank you so, so much for voting and of course also a huge thanks to the “I’m a Scientist” Team and my fabulous fellow scientists: Hugh, Julian, Heather and Jane. It was a pleasure taking part with you, and your answers were incredible – I definitely learned a thing or two!
I’m so excited to start planning how to spend the prize money, still can’t believe I won. I promise to keep you updated with how I get on, it’s going to make such a difference.
