The third scientist evicted is…

Connor Prior The votes were counted and recounted, but the result is in – Connor, it’s game over for you! Which means our three finalists are Tom Scott, Stacey New and James Lees. They’ll be battling it out tomorrow to win your VOTE for the £500 prize money. What would they do with the money if they won? Tom would: give schools a set of microcontrollers to play with – these are USB devices which can read sensor data and show it live on computer. Stacey would: develop a climate change board or card game with local students and get it professionally created! James would: use it to get more equipment and resources including Virtual Reality Software for the department to help talk about my research to others. Who do you want to see crowned winner? Every VOTE counts!
