      Hi Cal
      I think the best thing about being a scientist is trying new experiments in the lab and discovering things that no-one else knows. Its really good when an experiment works and you get a good result

      Hi Cal!

      That’s tough… there are lots of plus sides to being a scientist!

      I would go with the fact that it allows you to travel the world, and see some very cool places whilst being paid to be there! I’ve lived in Spain, Japan and Switzerland, and I’ve been to conferences in Germany and the USA…. so there’s no shortage of fun to be had! 🙂 And all of my expenses were covered by the university!
