      Hi Kira-louise weeder,

      I’m not so bothered about the money I just want to be able to talk more about space with interested kids!

      I currently live in Germany so the money would help me pop back to the UK and visit lots of school to talk about space and show you all some of the things astronauts use on the Space Station.

      I’d like to win the money so that I can visit schools and talk to children that haven’t had the opportunity to join in with I’m an Astronaut Get Me Out of Here so that they can learn about space too.

      I also think it would be super interesting to talk to Tim Peake because I don’t get to do that in my normal job in the UK

      I didn’t know there was a money side when I agreed to answer questions and help with this. That made it a bit awkward…

      I can talk about space all day long so I’d be keen to use it to buy some space goodies and spacefood to bring to the winning school or if it was logistically possible to do that and take the school class to Harwell or Stevenage or the National Space Centre, I’d add that on as an excursion
