The Bohrium Zone student winner is…

During every event we ask the scientists and moderators to nominate their top student — one who’s made the most of the event, shown enthusiasm and asked some really great questions.

Clodagh from St Dominic’s High School was nominated by the scientists for “asking a series of excellent questions regarding the use of animals in medical experiments. Whilst Clodagh expressed some views very different from my own, they acted respectfully and showed some amazing behaviours from which most adults could learn.

As the student winner, Clodagh will receive a certificate and a gift voucher.
