Students have now asked over 680 questions and have 37 live chats booked for the rest of term! There’s still time to BOOK your live chat to get your students In the Zone! in the last week 2nd – 6th July.
Questions: Bones, stem cells and knees!
While Mark’s been explaining “how do you get the stem cells to build the correct organ?“,
Question of the week goes to student shayes18 for asking “when in a race and we see when to go, why don’t we go straight away when our brains recognise to go?”
Live chats: More bones…
Students stuck to the bone theme in live chats, asking: “can you break your funny bone?” and “does petis filous make your bones grow strongerer?” at St Philomena’s School,
While Admiral Lord Nelson School students asked Alison “how do you know if the bone is a girls or a boys?“
And students at Stewart Melville College wanted to know “how long will it take for the England goalkeeper coach to recover from a snapped achilles tendon?” and “scientific proof on who you think will win the euro’s?”
What’s to come?
There’s 14 live chats booked for next week! Students will be talking to scientists:
- Amy Evans, PhD, University of Sheffield: “I look at the bones of different types of people using bone scanners to try to undertand why some people break their bones more easily than other people”
- Maria Konstantaki, Lecturer, Buckinghamshire New University: “Pasta or cake? What’s the best food to eat before, during and after exercise and why? What happens if we eat too much of a ‘good food’?”
- Mark Uphill, Lecturer, Canterbury Christ Church University: “Butterflies, knots and fire in the belly: my research explores athletes’ emotions during competition and the extent to which their emotions may help or hinder sport performance.“
- Mark Lewis, Professor, Loughborough University: “Growing muscles in the lab!”
