In 15 manic live chats students have been putting scientists through their paces this week. Probing scientists on: “how does warming up before sports help you to not pull a muscle?“,

how does numbness stop the pain?

And “do hormones have a direct connection with aggression?

In a live chat with St Katherine’s School Jemma gave student amms94 some encouragement:

amms94 : every time i do an expermiment it never works
jemmaransom1 : @amms94, I know that feeling. I’ve just finished the lab work for my PhD, and it took me a year just to get the experiment working. The important thing is to keep at it!
amms94 : okay i will do

and question of the week goes to student mshaw for asking: “if you did a head stand in space would your blood still go to your head?

 

Next week’s scientists In the Zone are:
