      I don’t know at this stage, keep answering all your questions as best I can – but I’m sure that Laura’s plan too! Maybe the only way to win is to tie Laura’s hands up 🙂 Joking, of course! I have a meeting today that couldn’t be changed from 10am-4pm, so unfortunately I’m going to have to sneak in and out of the chats when I can! 🙁

      Anyway, I’m delighted it’s all female final – shows how far engineering has come in last few years. The whole point of this is to get young people thinking about engineering as a possible career that hadn’t maybe considered it before – if I helped in some way towards that, that’s a win in itself 🙂

      Haha Catherine, you don’t need to tie my hands up. For some reason, my cat has become obsessed with sitting on my keyboard during the live chat sessions 😀

      There’s nothing Catherine or I can do to sway the votes, you guys just have to vote for who you want to win. I’m just having fun answering questions and getting to tell you what engineering is really like. I had no idea that engineering even existed until I was in leaving cert and even then, I had no idea of the difference between engineering & science.

      Hope you guys have enjoyed your time here too and I hope we’ve shown you how great engineering is. Thanks for all the questions, it’s great when someone takes an interest. I could talk about my work all day 🙂
