      In all honesty that’s not the reason I’m participating in this event. If I don’t win the £500, I won’t be unhappy at all. The main reason I’ve sat and answered peoples questions and joined in with the chats when I can is not because I wanted to win the money, but because I think it is important to reach out to people and to talk about science and issues surrounding working within science. If you have learnt anything from the interactions with all of us over the past week, then I will be consider it a sucess and be very happy.

      I’m not too fussed about the money (although it would be amazing to win!) I really enjoy teaching during my PhD so I thought this would be a fun opportunity to use my knowledge to help you all out and hopefully get you guys more interested in science.

      I’m not really driven by the money aspect of IAS, like the others have said I just wanted to communicate the science I do everyday to all of you. I’ve really enjoyed the chats so far and hope you have all enjoyed them too! I’m always keen to break down and barriers there may be (or seem to be) between students and science. Of course it’d be nice to win the money and if I did I’d put it towards an outreach app myself and a few others have been developing to conduct school visits. If that doesn’t happen then as long as you’ve all gained something over these few days then I’m happy!

      I’m not sure how to answer this question. I think that any of the scientists would be able to put the money to great use. I’ve had a great time doing this and hope you’ve learned a thing or two – thats most important to me

      I am out already, maybe because I did not answer this question 😉 Students hsould vote for someone who has the most interesting idea to spend money on – all of them are good but find one which would be the best and worth a while! 🙂
