      I’d be really happy. Answering all of these questions have made me feel a lot more enthusiastic about my work. I was enthusiastic to start with but something about all of the students who’ve asked questions and done live chats has made me feel really really enthusiastic! Answering questions has also helped me come up with a few new ideas for materials and ideas to solve some problems that we’ve come up against. Of course the biggest change to my work would be that I’d have an excuse to go visit some schools with the chemistry experiment kit if I won. Then I’d escape from the lab for a wee while and hopefully top up the enthusiasm levels a bit!

      Thanks for all the great questions 🙂
