      This is really tough. I like Blanka’s DNA-extraction kits, because having watched a lot of crime shows I would’ve loved to have played with DNA in my science lessons!

      I also used to be in Cubs, and I really like the idea of spreading science out that way, so I like Emma’s idea too.

      A really tricky question!

      Blanka’s DNA extraction kits are cool – sometimes when you learn about DNA because it is so tiny it can seem a bit abstract and somehow not linked to the real world.

      I also love Mike’s idea about getting more coding into school with his app and the Code club. We didn’t do any computer science at school (all we did was learn how to use Word software) and so now as an adult I find it quite tricky to learn (although I have been trying to learn a little bit of programming in my spare time)

      So many good ideas – it’s such a shame only one can win!

      Everyone being very diplomatic here, I like that. When I was initially reading through the profiles, the Brownie badge for science really caught my eye as such a good idea, but then I think in this day and age we will all need to be vaguely familiar with computers so bringing computing into school through Code Club sounds like a brilliant idea.

      And Emma and Mike have been really brilliant at finding out the detailed answers for you so I’d definitely say it has to be one of them, it’s hard to say one way or the other because their work and expertise is so very different.

      I’m glad you guys get to make the decision!
