Scorcher questions and live chats!

We’re now half way through In the Zone, and it’s not just the weather hotting up…

Live chats with Rhyl High School and Moorside High School, were pretty much on fire. Students were keen to chat to scientists about ‘who will take drugs in the olympics’, ‘how many Mcdonalds would you have to eat to cause a heart attack’ and whether goal line technology should be introduced into football.  After Moorside High School’s live chat one student said:

“thanks for answering my questions however i will always be curious!”

There’s still time to get your curious students In the ZoneBOOK LIVE CHATS for them now!

 

In student questions Adam’s been helping students find out:

“What happens in our body when we get a rush of adrenalin?”,

and “When sprinting how does could holding your breath help?”

 

This week’s question of the week goes to student khizarsiqbal for asking: “What part of the brain is the most active when someone is under stress or pressure? why?”

 

And questions have already started coming in for next week’s scientists:

“If energy can never be created or destroyed then where does the energy in our bodies go when die…”

 

Next week we’ve got a brand new set of scientists In the Zone:

A big thank you to Adam, Faye and Martin, who have now completed their In the Zone weeks. After today’s live chat with Moorside School Faye said:

“Id like to say a huge thank you to all of the students for their inquisitive and insightful questions…they ‘ve been abolsutely great and it’s fantastic hearing so many young people engaging with science”
