The first scientist you’ve evicted is…

It’s been a fantastic event so far with the scientists answering hundreds of questions between them. But there can be only one zone winner. Today 5 become 4 as the first scientist leaves the competition. The first scientist to be evicted is… Clemence Bonnot Thank you for all you’ve done. We hope you’ve enjoyed taking part. And remember, even though you’ve been evicted, you can still take part in live chats. There will be evictions every day for the rest of the week, with the winner announced on Friday. So students, make sure you VOTE! And remember, as well as giving prizes to the winning scientists, we also give prizes to students. One student in each zone will win a £20 WH Smith voucher for asking great questions (questions that aren’t about One Direction).
