We asked Aoife to tell us about winning I’m a Scientist, and here is what she said…
I have to say, two weeks ago when I started taking part in I’m a Scientist I did not expect to come out the other end as the winner of the New Materials Zone!
Thank you all so much for your fantastic questions and for getting me thinking about some things that I never get to on a daily basis, like how I feel about magnesium or what inspired me to become a scientist in the first place. There were some really fantastic thought provoking questions and the chats were a lot of fun, I enjoyed trying to keep up with so many of you at once! Thank you all so much for getting me thinking and making the experience so enjoyable. (Thanks to everyone who voted for me too of course!)
I also want to thank the moderators and organisers at I’m a Scientist and the teachers involved for their part in having the sessions run so smoothly and for allowing me to take part in the first place.
Lastly, but absolutely not least a special thanks to the other scientists in my zone, Brian, Conor, Matthew and Louise. You guys played a huge part in making this so enjoyable and I’m sure the students would agree with that.
Thanks for the memories!
