      I love knowing why the sky is blue, how a compute chip works, how the next generation of flexible electronic will work and much more by studying physics. Theres a great sense of achievement when you fully understand how something “works” or why it behaves a certain way

      Science is great because it is all about what is true. You find a problem- something you don’t know. Then you come up with a way to figure it out. You use facts and evidence to back up your answer. There is no messing about- it is what it is!

      Also I love the idea of being the first person to figure something out. Being on the forefront of human knowledge is REALLY exciting to me!
