Congratulations Ian! The students have voted you their favourite scientist and most worthy of the £500 prize to communicate your science work.

Hard luck to Derek and thank you to all the other scientists who took part, you were all brilliant and each and every single one of you has contributed to the great success of this year’s event.

    Well done Ian! You’ve won over students across the nation with your ready participation in chat and your answered questions.

    Derek, you said your main reason for doing IAS was to engage with young people and encourage them that science isn’t boring and difficult, but can be exciting, fun and something that makes the world a better place to live in. I think we can certainly say you’ve achieved that goal, and I think you won the hearts of many students with generous descriptions of both your research and your schoolday antics!

    Congratulations, Ian, and a deep bow to you, Derek!

    I am really looking forward to have more interactions in the future to tell the world (and kids in particular) about the excitements provided by science, while not forgetting the world around it.
