Question: What is it like talking and answering questions from future scientists?
Adam Jones answered on 16 Jul 2021:
Interesting! I think we’ve all had a wide-range of questions about a whole host of subjects (quite a lot about football before the finals for example) and no 2 sessions are the same.
It’s interesting that what’s happening in the world influences what questions are asked and shows that future scientists are aware of what’s happening in the world and that it must impact/influence the NHS/healthcare. Which is great if you’re thinking about a career here – you already understand some of the complexities!
I also spend some time wondering what I would’ve asked given the same opportunity at school/college.

It’s the kind of thing that I would’ve valued when I was at your stage;
Could I do what they’re doing?
I don’t really have a background that other future scientists have, will I be able to fit in and will I be a success?
If you’re reading this and wondering if you can do it:
Work hard and believe in yourself.
Take the constructive advice of your teachers.
Talking to and answering questions from students helps me see my career from a new perspective and that’s been particularly welcome at this challenging time in the pandemic, so thanks for being part of that.
The only difference between scientists and future scientists is time.
You’re worth that time.

It’s really interesting talking to people on the chat. It can be fast and furious with lots of questions. Sometimes its a little repetitive but then you get thrown a really interesting question. We’ve never had two sessions quite the same.
I’d hope by answering questions we might have helped someone make a decision to pursue a career in science and health care. Thankfully it’s not been too technical!
