“Do you want to make banana loaf tonight?”
I am the moment before your favourite band comes on. Unpredictable, attention seeking and waiting.
It wasn’t the day I knew I wanted to become a scientist, but the day I became a scientist. The teacher of our primary 6 class was explaining that the speed of light was extremely fast. To demonstrate, she walked over to the light switch and turned off the unnecessary classroom bulbs.
“Now watch how quickly the light comes back on when I hit the switch.”
The room instantly became that bit brighter. I raised my hand and she looked over.
“That’s not really the speed of the light. It’s also the speed of electricity.”
