I would like to take part in the Peterhouse Kelvin science prize, but I have looked on their website and the 2020 questions have yet to be released. I thought that the questions would be released by December 2019?

I am interested in taking part in the essay prize, however, it seems that I couldn't access the webpage using this link (https://www.pet.cam.ac.uk/essay-prizes).

Hi there! We're having a few problems with our website at the moment. The questions are:

"The zombie ant fungus, Cordiceps, manipulates ants by taking control of their brains. Can the ants evolve a response to this or are they locked into a zombie apocalypse for ever?"

"Using numerical evidence, what carbon stocks could be enhanced to make the UK carbon neutral?"

Hi there. Are you 100% certain on your spelling of "Cordiceps"? Because everywhere I look it's spelt with a 'y', as in Cordyceps. Maybe its the US vs UK spelling, but I just want to confirm

Not yet I’ve done the research but I just need to write it.

How are you finding it

Are you going to only write about the Cordyceps unilateralis species or all the Cordyceps.

I'm finding it good considering I've just started researching a few hours ago and don't really have any ideas yet, so I can't really answer your 2nd question at the moment.

You sound like you know your stuff though. Good luck
