      Am I allowed to buy myself a new laptop? Joking 🙂

      I think I’d just do an upscale version of the event I had planned, and invite some cool people to do talks, and offer bigger prizes for the games to encourage more people to attend.

      This is such a good question and it made me really think! I don’t think I would necessarily change the core of my idea, but I would upscale it so I could do it with more children at more schools. It would be nice to get lots of teens and children involved and make it a bigger project.

      I like Priya’s idea of a prize, I think similarly the event could be widened from parent focus to inviting some teachers along too, and perhaps run this as a little roadshow around local schools to inform them about research being conducted in the lab.

      I’d probably want to work with an artist/illustrator to do a really cool short video about what Educational Psychologists do.
