      You should vote for whomever you think answers the questions the best! Obviously i’d love you to vote for me, and then I’d bring my stem cells out to you! But the other guys are pretty great too!

      Because it would be so great to win! Doing this has been so exciting for me, I’ve never done any work to communicate science to young people before and I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it quite this much.

      You should vote for whoever you think has answered your questions best though – I think all the scientists have done a great job!

      (vote for me, vote for me!)

      If I win, I’ll spend the prize money on a computer system that will let school students *anywhere* come and visit us, via the internet, when we’re exploring the bottom of the ocean, and take part in that.

      So you could get to see things like this, live, as we see them for the first time, and help us decide what to look at on the ocean floor:

      Obviously I’m biased(!), and you shouldn’t just take my word for it, but I think that could benefit lots of students, because it could involve students anywhere 😉

      Because it will make England win the world cup.

      Well, it’s a hypothesis that might be worth testing….
