I love it. It made me aware of what it is like to be in this field. It is better to have a lot of knowledge about a field rather than just picking it out and think, I have heard about this, I might as well apply for it. But I was wrong, there are many things I do not know about this field and If I am being honest, I thought it was mainly maths involved but there is more to it and it sounds really exciting. I would to thank you very very much for letting me participate in this programme. It was a fun experience :)
