      Yes I hope so.

      Historically science has been perceived to be the job of ‘mad scientists’ working in a lab, or old, usually white, men.

      Hopefully today you guys can see that not all science takes place in the lab and is accessible to all kinds of people from different backgrounds- actually we are all pretty normal people.
