    I'm one of the students in year 9 from Tumut High School who watched your presentation. I'd just like to say that it was very interesting, and you presented it with incredibly awesome skills. :) I've never really realised how amazing and complex science really is. You inspired me to try the best I possibly can in Science, since I'm not very good or interested in it. But I suppose things change. Thanks again. :D“
