I still can’t believe you chose me as your winner, thank you so much! It was such an incredible experience. I was on my way to camping and was worried I wouldn’t see who would win when I saw an email saying I had won. I thought it was some sort of mistake! Thanks again to everyone and also to the other scientists in the protein zone, you all did fantastically and you all deserved to win!
This was such an amazing experience because I’ve never really engaged with people other than other scientists about my work before. I really enjoyed it; there were so many fantastic questions and brilliant future scientists out there.
Whilst our zone was a fairly quiet zone compared to others, I think we still got an incredible amount of interesting questions. The questions really made me think about things and I gained so much from it myself. The live chats were great but they were just so quick and it was so hard to answer everyone; so sorry if I didn’t get to answer your questions. It was great having them because they allowed direct feedback and a more personal chat. I hope we proved to you all that whilst we are scientists, we are just normal people!
I want to say thanks to all the students, teachers and the I’m a Scientist Team for all your hard work and effort.
