Michelle bows out of I'm a Scientist
"I'm a Scientist Get Me Out of Here" enables school students to talk directly to a panel of 100 scientists over a period of two weeks.
Youngsters can ask any questions they like, not just about science, and then they vote for the scientist they like the best.
Michelle Hudson survived the first two evictions but was eliminated in the third round after failing to win enough votes from the school students taking part.
The contest consisted of daily live chats and online questions from the schools that scientists had to answer. No topics were off limits so the event was sometimes very challenging.
FRAME Science Officer Michelle said: "It has been great fun and I'm really pleased that I went in for it. The students asked some very tricky questions at times and I have had to learn to reply in terms that they understand and avoid technical terms. It will be a huge help in communicating my work in the future."
She is currently conducting research into the use of non-human primates in medical science which she hopes will lead to a PhD next year.
