      Oh, that’s hard! It has to be your decision after all!

      One good reason is that Code Club really deserve some money to continue doing their work! We need to teach computing and programming to more young kids so we can prepare them for a world full of technology.

      I’d really like to build this mobile app, too. Science is best interacted with, rather than read about, and that’s especially true when we’re making things like videogames! I want to be able to show people what’s really going on with the project.

      Tough question!

      1) Microbes (bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae) are everywhere – there are far more microbes than animals and plants. In fact there are 10x as many bacterial cells on and in you right now than you have human cells in your body. We don’t really learn about them at school which I think is really sad because they make up a huge part of our world. The £500 would help me show other students like you what they are missing

      2) Currently I have only tried the microbe badge with brownies and guides because my friend runs the units. That means that boys and girls who go to cubs and scouts are missing out. The money would help me reach these kids too.
