      Hi Charleneand Ibby,

      I think that by spending the money to buy new and better science equipment for local schools this will help inspire many more young people than a one off event or trip. I want to get the message out to as many people as possible that STEM subjects are really exciting and the best way of doing that is by showing them the incredible things you can do with a little knowledge and by getting your hands dirty.

      So, I want to offer the money to the school which can show that investing in some new experimental equipment will really help their pupils to learn and understand scientific principles and give science the Wow factor it deserves.

      Huw 🙂

      I think the idea that I have to donate the money for a school to use to get a 3D printer could benefit all generations,.

      I believe that the people in education today are the ones who are going to find lots of new applications for 3D printing and some of those applications will definitely benefit all ages and all generations.

      There are already examples of this in the applications that have been implemented in the bio-medical area, many of which have benefitted young and old alike.

      As explained on my profile, I would launch a competition at a local school, where students would suggest solutions to current engineering issues. I will take the winners to see the shard.

      I think this could quite simply benefit all generations:
      1. It will hopefully inspire the students to get involved in engineering
      2. If they become engineers, it benefits every generation! Without engineers you wouldn’t have a lot of the things you take for granted in your everyday life! 😛

      I know its a simple answer but I’m sorry for taking ages to reply!
