      I would like to use the money to set up a science – student pen pal programme. I’ve had so much fun speaking with you all during IaS and it would be really neat to make a longer programme where we get to talk a bit more. 🙂 Basically, scientists and students would be matched up and send letters to each other.

      I would like to use the money to help the national council for the blind set up a science program for children that are blind so that they can do science. At the moment it is really hard for kids that are blind to do science in school as a lot of schools do not know how to teach them. So I would like to set up a program that children who are blind can do and that teachers could go to as well during the summer so that they get ideas on how to teach blind children!
