Curious young minds

Earlier this month I was contacted by Scientist in Residence Jennifer Hogan on twitter. Jennifer, as I found out, runs a very special science lab for primary children in Northants called Lab_13.

Lab_13 is a space dedicated entirely to investigation, innovation and creativity; a space managed by young people; a space led by young people.

What a fabulous concept I thought!

Jennifer invited me to be interviewed by some of the children on the Lab_13 committee about my career path. They were particularly interested in how I had combined my dual loves of science and art.

Of course I agreed, as there is nothing more satisfying than being able to help enthuse and encourage young people to get involved in science!

Thanks Jennifer, George and everyone at Lab_13, it was an honour to be asked and an absolute pleasure to get involved!
