I’m a Scientist is like school science lessons meet the X Factor! School students choose which scientist gets a prize of $1,000 to communicate their work.
Scientists and students talk on this website. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn. But only the students get to vote.
This zone is the Brain Zone. It has a range of scientists studying all different topics. Who gets the prize? YOU decide!
So, what’s the Brain Zone all about?
The brain is the control center for your whole body. It’s the boss of your body when you are awake and even when you are asleep. Your thoughts, your dreams, the movement of your limbs to the beating of your heart, it makes all the decisions!
With so much going on in your brain we need lots of different types of brain scientists to try and understand it all. The Brain Zone includes scientists that look at how your sleep affects the way you feel, how it heals itself after being injured, to how it makes decisions based on what you see – telling your hands to catch the ball that you see coming your way!
