      Hi caoimhemoorendnsp1,
      I don’t mind if I do not win the competition, it would be nice to win but winning isn’t everything! When I signed up for this, I didn’t realise it was a competition. I thought we were just signing up to talk to students and teachers alike about science and life. If I could inspire just one person, that would be reward enough for me.

      If I did win, I would use the money to buy some more demonstration kits so I can keep going to science events and show people cool experiments! I just want to keep inspiring people!

      I actually didnt think that this I’m a Scientist was a competition. I’m happy to participate where I can and help out. Doesn’t bother me if there is a competition element to it

      It would be nice to win, but I’m happy to have taken part whether I win or not. It’s great to hear all of the super questions and chat to some of you during lock-down!

      Winning is always a nice feeling but I am really happy that I took part so that I can talk to everyone! I have had so much fun on the chats this week and can’t wait to take part in more. Some of the questions have been amazing 🙂 This is something I would take part in even of it wasn’t a competition!

      It would be nice to win the competition, but it is more fun taking part in the chats and answering your questions. If I won, I would use the money to buy some filming equipment for schools who would like to make fun science videos.
