I don’t have any kids of my own, but I’m a not-really-aunty to my best friend’s boy (he is 7) and he always asks to play ‘science experiments’ with me when I visit. His Dad (my best friend) is a scientist too and we make explosions a lot.
I don’t have children, but I come from a big extended family. One of my many cousins is an engineer, but there are no other scientists, so I sort of got interested in it by myself. I think this is true for lots of my scientist friends too!
