Our student winners from August 2013 are *drum roll*

Thank you for joining us for I’m a Scientist, Get Me out of Here! for August/September 2013.

It was a truly amazing effort. The final stats are as follows and includes a new I’m a Scientist, Get me out of Here! record for the number of questions asked in a single zone – 428 questions posted in the Nitrogen Zone, smashing the previous record of 399 held by the Disease Zone of our March event:

Zone Students Questions Comments Live Chats
Brain 232 395 206 22
Micro Life 214 157 114 21
Nitrogen 245 428 258 17
Total 691 976 578 60

The big news are the Student Zone Winners. In each zone we award a $50 iTunes voucher and certificate to a student based on the recommendations of our scientists, recognising a quality question, contributing to a interesting discussion or degree of engagement with the Q&A and Live Chat. We’ve also made some special commendations and those students will receive certificates. Certificates and vouchers are being posted via your coordinating teacher. The winners are:
