      i think this might be best answered by one of the “Im a scientist” staff. We didnt name the themes. Although i think they have an explanation on the main page! https://hydrogenn12.imascientist.ie/

      haven’t a clue! Hydrogen is the first element in the periodic table and the most abundant in the universe. it’s also highly explosive and used as rocket fuel.. no idea how that relates to our group.. maybe we’re simple 😀

      I’m not sure why they picked this name…Maybe because hydrogen is element #1, and this zone has the best students and scientists!? 🙂
