      No, I wasn’t really sure until I finished school. But from early on it looked like I was going in that direction – there was lots of Lego etc, as we were saying this morning.

      I always knew I would do something in science or engineering because it was something I was really interested in when I was younger. I was constantly reading science books and making things with lego, so my mum and dad probably thought the same! It was only when I left secondary school that I got to see what engineering/physics was like properly in college.

      Hi Deco,

      Not at all! I did engineering in college because I liked studying maths and science. I figured I could do anything I wanted afterwards – I just happened to really like chemical engineering!
