      Winning would be an honour, I feel way less qualified than the other scientists tbh! And taking part has been really great in and of itself, it’s really inspiring to see the different questions and opinions and interests. My plan is to use the prize money to purchase Foldscopes, these are portable paper microscopes. I’d like to design a workshop to let students learn more about bacteria, and use the microscopes to view bacteria living in biofilms using samples that students would like to check for.
