      A scientist might ask, ‘what would make you vote for me?’ 😉

      If I win, it’s hopefully because I’m a pretty fun and useful guy to know, am always happy to answer lots of questions about anything, and that I’ve managed to convince you that DNA and bacteria are awesome things to study (which they are!)

      I’m not sure if I will win. If I do it’s hopefully because I deserve it and that I’ve answered your questions well and been as interesting as I can be :-S
      But I think my idea of what to do with the money is pretty cool. When I was at school I’d have loved to go into a real lab and see what it’s like to be a scientist for a day. Hopefully you all like the idea too…

      I’m not sure I can win – I think that the only way to approach anything in life is to be yourself, answer questions honestly and have some fun with it!

      So far the questions have been fun and thought provoking so its already a worthwhile exercise.

      I’m in love w/ being a scientist. It’s what I do. But the idea that science is somehow for “nerds only” is totally bogus. Science is fun, science is exciting, and science is cool. And I love talking about how cool science really is. In fact, it’s the reason I started my own clothing line, “Lizzard Fashion” a fashion company that does just that- we make geek chic. I may not win the competition, but I’ll give it my best shot and I’m sure it will be a fun process. Thanks for the chance to talk science!
