Thanks to all the students, scientists and teachers that have taken part in the Planet Earth Zone!
This zone was funded by the Royal Institution, and was based around their CHRISTMAS LECTURES, which you can watch on BBC iPlayer.
It has been a fab four weeks. We hope you’ve enjoyed it – and we hope you’ve learnt something about what it’s like being a scientist.
There have been some excellent questions asked by students. Here are a couple of my favourites:
- What causes the most pollution in rivers and how can we help?
- I watched the Ri CHRISTMAS LECTURES, and in the 3rd lecture Dr Tara Shine was talking about how we can use hydrogen as a renewable source of energy and how it can replace fossil fuels and electric power. As this is such a good source of energy, why isn’t it used to power transport and other things?
- Do you think solar power could power cars and other vehicles in the future?
Though the Zone has come to an end, you can view it at any time, to look back at the scientists’ profiles, and see the answers they gave.
We hope you’ll carry on being curious – and keep asking questions!
Thanks so much for taking part.
