      Hello, thank you for the questions although I believe you may have sent them to the wrong person!

      Not sure on the mucus, but yuck!

      I’m not great at fixing computers. My job is to fix fighter jets for the Royal Air Force. We have technicians who specialising in the electronics (like all the computers) and they’re called Avionics Technicians. I’m a mechanical technician so I look after everything else (engines, hydraulics, fuel systems etc). Finally, I didn’t do a PhD.

      I joined the RAF with GCSE’s and did an apprenticeship – which is a great way to get into STEM without going to university.
