      Science was my favourite subject at school, I think I may have taken this subject too seriously. I enjoyed doing the experiments and then finding out why we got the results. I have actually returned to my old school a few times in the last year to talk to the students about some of the work I have been doing. One thing I would have loved is having a scientist come and talk to me so that I know exactly what that job was all about.

      Yes, loved it: I took the sciences separately and found each equally fascinating. I was always most interested in how the Earth formed and what the planets looked like, and I loved the chemistry experiments where you could feel like a wizard with all the colours and chemicals.

      I was also really lucky to get to study geology at A Level, which was by far my favourite subject.

      I loved science, my favourite one was Physics! I started a Big Bang lunchtime club when I was older in sixth form so that I could carry on experiments outside lessons. We did all the fun experiments like building rockets and having a rocket building competition.

      Yes, very much so. Physics and Chemistry mostly but I would have loved to have done Geophysics / Geology too.

      I did! I actually enjoy science more now though because I have chosen what I want to do. In school you have to learn all the basics which isn’t always fun but it is very important. You are not allowed to study science at university unless you know the basics first because you keep building on all that knowledge.
