      I haven’t won any awards since I was at school- there I won awards in History and Electronics, as well as awards for effort and determination.

      I think winning the I’m an astronaut challenge would be fun because I could go and speak to lots of schools about my favorite subject- Space!

      Um… I won a lot. But it’s kind of un-Australian to list things like that 🙂

      Hi SangeetaRaja04! Thanks for your question. I’ve won a few awards, mostly at school for merit and science, but I hope that the recognition Rocket Women (the website I created to inspire young women to study science) is gaining helps to encourage the next generation to consider a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths).
