Students in both zones have gone BONE mad this week! Asking Amy: “what’s the best way to make bone’s stronger?

While Mark’s been explaining “how do you get the stem cells to build the correct organ?“,

And Samantha lets us know “what her research is trying to find out?

 

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:

 

A big thank you to Adam and Samantha who have now finished their In the Zone! weeks
