      A couple of my friends took part a few years ago and said they loved it, so I had to try it! They said they got lots of interesting questions that really made them think.

      I have also helped out in a lot of science festivals and talking to people was the most fun part so I just wanted to do more of that.

      I also wanted to inspire a lot of kids into science because it is such a good subject and a really good career!

      I did it a couple of years ago and had a great time, really wanted to come back and do it again.

      I always enjoy doing outreach, I’m very enthusiastic about science and it’s always fun to talk to people about science and try and get them as interested in it as I am.

      I did this as I thought it was a good way of answering questions that children want to know. Also I love science and if I help one child realise they love it too then that is great!

      Also I thought it would be a good way of me finding out new things as well 😀
