      I think the best thing about it is how it can make things we imagine, real! It’s also fun to work on teams and solve problems but mainly I enjoy making things in Sci Fi books real.

      Using scientific principles and maths to make things that we can use to improve the quality of human life and our understanding of the universe. We build x-ray machines for doctors to see if a patient’s bones are broken or fractured so that the right treatment can be given. We build telescopes so that astronomers can learn fascinating information about planets, stars, galaxies and perhaps even the origins of life 🙂

      Being able to solve problems and to build new things. 🙂 🙂 🙂 It is really cool to see something being created in front of your eyes that no one else in the world has yet to see!!!!

      The best thing is that we are okay with changes and are always learning, from friends, expertises etc.
