      No kids, just a robot that kind of looks like a kid.

      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.

      No kids here either. But I can tell you that my parents aren’t scientists and aren’t really into science at all!

      I’m a great borrower of children. All the ones I’ve borrowed are generally interested in science.

      I have a son and he finds science very interesting, but I think he’s a bit more into Dr Who!

      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!

      I have 2 kids but they’re a bit young to be into science. Mostly they are into princesses and splashing in puddles. But they are both curious about how the world works, and I’m hoping to encourage them to keep asking science questions when they’re older.
