      I haven’t got a concrete plan yet, but basically I would find a way to show school students that scientists can be just like them. Take a few scientists and do some mini talks around some of the schools where the students are less likely to have parents who went to university. Scientists are all sorts of people – you don’t have to be white, or male, or stereotypically nerdy. I’d show them that physics can be a really exciting choice for anyone who likes it!
