      Hi Cliodhna,
      I would quite like a coding lesson from Bill Gates – I’m not very good at it, and he is probably one of the most successful computer programmers of all time!

      Hi Clíodhna,

      I think I would like to work with Richard Feynman, he wasn’t bothered by authority, he was very clever but also able to help others. He has some books that I read while I was at school called “Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!” and “The Pleasure of Finding Things Out” that are really fun to read and you don’t need to know lots of science to understand – he also has harder books but I would start with the fun ones!

      Best wishes,

      If I would have to choose only one person, it would be someone I trust and can rely on. Colleagues are no different from any other relationships. It is important to have complementary skills and good chemistry between one another

      Good question 🙂 but not an easy one to answer. It would be cool to work with a famous or influential scientist but they might be a horrible person and then it wouldn’t be fun!
