      I was 11!!! It was after my first term at grammar school when I started to be taught chemistry by a very inspiring teacher called Mr Good and I’ve been a chemist ever since.

      I was about 16 .. GCSE physics started to get really interesting and I immediately knew I wanted to carry on doing it

      14 – a combination of liking the logic of physics and science, and the need to make a difference in the world impressed upon me by my geography teacher.

      At 14 when we did the two forces measurement in the class … That really amazed me 😉
