      I hope that people think that I’m doing interesting work. I can see why people might question why I’m doing it because I’m not really helping to cure diseases or save the world, but I think that we should try and understand as much as we can about the world because we never know when certain knowledge will be useful!

      I like doing activities like I’m A Scientist because it gives me an opportunity to see what people think about scientists, and I can discuss with them the reasons why I’m doing my job 🙂
