      I would ask them to think about the problems we currently face and might face in the future. For example with population growth, how are we going to supply energy, food and water to the whole world? What happens when we run out of fossil fuels? Can we build a rocket and move to Mars? I would hope the challenge of solving these problems and looking after our planet would inspire anyone.

      Hi, thanks for the question, doing this is great idea! I do a lot of STEM activities to help you guys understand that what we do is very interesting and exciting. I would like you to question things, ask question why and if you cant get an answer find out :-).
