      Absolutely! If you can find the area of science that you enjoy the most, I’m pretty sure you will have fun too 😉

      It’s brilliant. You get to learn loads of really interesting things and talk to lots of people that are also really interesting. Plus it’s always fun designing and doing experiments and wonder whether you will get the result you expect!

      I am betting that all us scientists will say that being a scientist is fun – because while it can be hard work (and sometimes boring) there is nothing quite like the thrill of finding something out, and making progress in your research!
