      If they let me do it again, I definitely would!!! It has been so much fun chatting to all of you – you come up with really really good questions.

      Hopefully if I win I can use the prize money to go out and meet even more schoolchildren who can ask me these sorts of questions – so I would get to do the same thing all over again, but in person.

      Most definitely! I have had so much fun.

      I really enjoy talking to young people about science, as I think it is so important that we have good scientists in the future to do research on everything we still haven’t discovered! If I can just inspire one person to do science out of all the students I’ve spoken to in the past 2 weeks then this will have been worth it!

      The other reason I love talking to young people is you all have such good ideas! Answering your questions has made me think really hard about things I usually just take for granted. This means I see everything in a new way!

      I would certainly like to do this again, I’ve had a great time!

      If I don’t partake as a scientist, I would be interested in staying involved with I’m a Scientist! I saw an advert to be a chat moderator the other day. So I might look into that

      If I win, I will be sure to write a blog explaining and uploading photos how I use the money for my Summer Sunflower competition!
