      If I had it my way, we would all win £500 😀

      Valerie what a diplomatic answer! that would be amazing if we could all win… or maybe we should all work together with the money. I love your lego microscope idea.
      I dont know why I should win above the others. we all have great ideas and it’ll go to a great cause. If i were to win I’d spend the money on organising scientific outreach events in Nottingham with Pint of Science and 500 Women Scientists.

      Good answer Valerie, I agree, maybe the Wellcome trust should come up with a few more prizes!

      I would use to money to build a kit our lab can use for school teaching to show the kind of work we do. I want to sow what engineers can do to help people with disabilities. This will include a ‘design a wheelchair’ and a ‘measuring the nervous system’ component. I will make the kit with the work experience students who spend time in our lab.

      I think they should separate the ideas from the people. And you should vote for the best idea as oppose to the best person 🙂

      I am not worried about winning. I just want to help young people become well informed about their options where a career in engineering is concerned.
