      Yes very! Can’t quite believe I’ve made it this far!

      The competition has really inspired me to work with a local primary school, to help them make science lessons more exciting, to get them some better equipment and generally give the children an idea of what it is to be a scientist. I’m building up ideas all the time of things I can do with them. I am thinking I will probably do some of this anyway, but the money would certainly be useful to help this.

      But to be honest I’m not sure it matters too much who wins, the biggest thing has been everything we (us the scientists and you the students) have done already over the last 2 weeks.
      Have you enjoyed it? And do you think you will come to the last live chat today?

      Hey reenexox,

      I’m excited to be in the final two, yes, and I’m very thankful of everyone that has voted for me. But I can’t say I’m excited to win, we won’t know who the winner is until the end of the day.

      I’ve definitely had a great time though, and have loved answering yours and all the other questions. It’s such a fantastic experience. Some of the questions are so imaginative – I think we start to lose that sort of freedom as we get older so it’s refreshing to see it again :D.

      I hope you have enjoyed the competition too? Are you excited to see who wins?
