      I’ve no idea why anyone would vote for me.
      Do i make you laugh, can I answer a question you’ve been dying to know, can I explain something that you find complicated, do we like the same music or pizza topping?
      Do you know, i get to vote too?
      Comment below and tell me why i should vote for you… 😄💰👍😄💰👍😄💰👍😄💰👍😄💰👍

      If you’ve never heard about core technology facilities and the careers available within them. That would be a good start as I’d like to make this scientific career opportunity become more known and the pathway better developed.

      Because I’m awesome?

      And I can vote too 🙂

      Because it’ll make my week/life. 🙂 And I hope that I have done an okay job at asking some of these weird and wonderful questions!

      It would make me veeery happy to know that even just one person has found my ideas about science useful or interesting and maybe even persuaded them to think about future careers as a scientist!!👩🏻‍🔬

      because I think my idea to build a small game/challenge showing how we handle fragile objects is a great idea and I’d love to have £500 to help turn it into reality!

      Because you wouldn’t be voting for me, you would be voting to give everyone (across the globe) the chance to explore something that no one has ever been able to see before. The £500 would go towards building a moving 3D temperature map of the brain so that anyone with an internet connection can explore how brain temperature changes in space and time!

      See my profile for more details!

      To be honest, I’m not here to collect the votes although a few would be nice. I just want to answer all your questions so I can inspire a few people, help people to understand that scientists come in all shapes and forms and are real people too, and hopefully persuade a few of you to join us in these professions.

      Great question! You should really vote for whoever you feel answers the questions the best and whoever inspires you the most! I would love it if you voted for me, but am also happy if any of the others get your vote as they are all great scientists and I’m learning lots from them too! 🙂

      Well, it would make me happy! But apart from that, I just hope that you’ve enjoyed chatting to me and that I’ve been able to answer your questions and help you think a bit more about a career in science. Winning isn’t the important part – what is important is what you guys get out of this, not us!

      In Truth, you should voter for whoever you feel will use the money for something that you feel is the most worthwhile in your mind. Also add to that how well they answer questions and respond to you.

      I would like you to vote for me for what I would use the money to do. It is detailed better in my profile (as is everyone’s) but basically I personally want to use the money to do some science workshops in disability schools and units to allow those children to access science more easily and to show them that they can also be a scientist too!
