      Each of my projects have been very different so the challenges tend to vary a lot! In my current project, a lot of the challenge is finding a way to recreate the design in my head on a computer. In my last project it was a lot of coding, so there were loads of errors to figure out! Before that it was trying to do high temperature testing of samples, so heating took all night and sometimes I would come in the next morning to find something went wrong and I’d have to turn off the heater and start all over again that evening!
