      *Please let me know if I get your question correctly: what would I do if I win the prize money? and why?
      If I win the prize money, I would give away the prize to an ambitious group of high school students who want to work on one science project and need a budget to work on it.

      The reason it’s important is that I have seen a lot of students who have a lot of ideas, but they did not use the ideas to make it happen. It’s a great opportunity for me to know a group in person and support them as much as I can to accomplish their project. I also want to know how students solve problems and overcome challenges, and then use these methods to teach other high school students

      We do some pretty cool things to keep life going as we know it but still help the environment. Renewable fuels, fuel cells, and electric cars are fantastic ideas, but it will take time to get all those things in mass use. Catalytic converters help clean up the exhaust from the cars and trucks we have now, so we can still use our means of shipping, get places, and just keep life largelty as we know it.

      Our outreach via community volunteering represents Johnson Matthey and showcases that the business is promoting diversity and inclusion. Our potential volunteer opportunities include the following – visit local schools / bring your child to work day.

      I signed up to interact with you all and hopefully help you continue your interest in STEM fields! Please vote for someone else to win the money. IF I won I would donate it all to our local existing public school STEM programs.

      I don’t know if my work would win “the money” but what I would do with it is the deciding factor. I would donate the money to my high school science department for the benefit of students who stand where I once stood. Help foster a love of the sciences in the next generation. Maybe that gift would assist one student who needed a little more of a push into the a STEM field. The more the merrier!

      Community engagement and empowerment are very important, especially in environmental-related projects. Community science and outreach in different local communities can help bridge the STEM gap, and encourage people to pursue STEM paths.

      I don’t know if my work will win the money. To be sincere, I didn’t apply to participate in this phenomenal initiative for the money. I applied because I think it’s fundamental to inspire the new generations, show them that everybody can become a scientist if it’s what you want to be no matter your gender, your upbringing, and your story. For this reason, I will invest the money to keep doing the work that this initiative started. I want to go around the high school in the area where I live and offer my time to students that wants to know more about science and scientists.
