After a fun-filled 2 weeks of live chats and student questions, it’s time to say well done to the student winners in each zone!
Moderators and scientists have nominated students in each zone who asked lots of interesting questions, engaged well in live chats or left some thought provoking comments.
The winners get a £20 WH Smiths voucher and a certificate. We’ve also listed a few runners up in each zone who also asked lots of great questions.
