First Brain away…

It’s been a fantastic event so far and the scientists have worked hard, answering thousands of questions between them. But on Friday there can only be one winner in each zone, so some of them have to go. We are sorry to have to do this to you, but the first scientist to be evicted is… Jane Henry Jane, thanks so much for taking part in the chats and answering the many questions. Though you are out, because of you we all understand that little bit much more about the brain now! We hope you’ve enjoyed the experience. There will be evictions every day for the rest of the week, with the winner announced on Friday. Keep voting students! Who will walk off with the prize? YOU decide!
