      I’ve always like science… even at primary school I like learning how things worked and taking things apart to find out how they worked.

      I did – I liked learning about animals and space when I was younger, then I became interested in the human body during school! I was never a big fan of physics though…

      I think I always did, yes. Mostly enjoyed it in school and always had a pile of nature books at home that I would look at a lot when I was small. I did start enjoying it a lot more when I got to uni though and we were doing a lot more in depth learning of how things work.

      Yes! Though I didnt know I liked the science Im in now. I always liked nature, and was curious about how stuff worked in general. When I was at secondary school we started learning about DNA and genetics and I found that particularly interesting, and that’s what I ended up specialising in!

      Always…I was always fascinated with learning how things worked, fixing things, etc.. It got to a point where my parents stopped buying me good toys because I would remove them and use parts to make something else.

      Yes, but it wasn’t until I was 14-15 years old that I really got passionate about it!

      Yes, I had a chemistry set when I was younger although I often just mixed things together!

      Not always, it could be frustrating when I didn’t understand something. It took a lot of work to get good grades. It took several years to start to appreciate how science is about finding out what you don’t know.

      Yes, I was interested in how things worked but it wasn’t easy, some areas I found quite difficult but I pushed through as I wanted to do better.

      Sort of, but I mostly liked maths and art and writing stories when younger. I had some amazing teachers when I was 13-14 who helped to show me how great science could be.

      I loved Biology, mainly learning about the body. I didn’t mind Physics, because there was a lot of maths involved, but I have never liked Chemistry!

      I did like science when I was younger! I didn’t always know that what I was interested in was science, but I was a very curious person and always had a lot of questions. As I got older, I realised that most of my questions were related to science and that I could use science to find out the answers. That’s when I knew I was going to stay interested forever.

      I liked some parts of science, but not all of it and I preferred Art and IT when at school.
      But when i went to college i realised i was much better at the sciences and it got a lot more interesting!

      I’ve always enjoyed learning about science but my favourite subject was always maths until later in high school

      Absolutely, I am always curious about how things works and how people come up such good invention.

      The first day we started learning physics topics at school. I knew I want to be a physicist.

      I’ve always found science fascinating, discovering new things and being able to explain how the world works always amazed me.

      Growing up in a village and a farm, I have always liked science. My favourite part was looking at chickens, cows and goats and trying to understand their behaviour. I even enjoyed observing plants and insects in our garden.

      Yes, I really enjoyed learning about the different sciences at school, and especially liked when we got to try experiments for ourselves. I liked the surprise of not knowing what the answer would be, or not knowing what would happen next… I still like that about science and my job!

      I didn’t enjoy my time at school. I found science really difficult to understand and I didn’t see the relevance of what I was being taught and how it applied to me. This is why I became a STEM Ambassador, I’m really passionate about being visable. By this, I mean that people can’t be what they don’t see, so by me going into schools and explaining my role and how the knowledge being taught in the classroom applies to what I do, then hopefully this helps any students that are a little unsure and feel unsettled in their school life.

      yes i always liked science. i liked doing the experiments in class and i liked the biology of natural things. i still do even though i work as a chemist. i like identifying the wild plants that grow around us in nature and spotting wild birds even tho im not that great at identifying them all unless i have a book with me 🙂
