      The £500 isn’t for our project, but for us to spend on outreach and engagement activities to encourage more people to learn about STEM.
      It would be very helpful for me to make resources for workshops in schools to inspire students about STEM careers and all the different aspects of it and share my passion for it.

      this money is not for our personal project but to help and promote STEM. I have planned to donate the money to a website which is called School aid, you can choose where and what you want to spend the money, and they gather all the donations and do what you asked for. I would like to help the schools in Africa to have more STEM kits, so they can also benefit like most of the other children. I didn’t choose to use it myself for any workshops, because my company already has a big budget for the STEM activities in the UK and I thought it’s better if I donate the money to a place which really really needs it
