Dr Marco Bertamini
Occupation: Academic Teacher and Researcher
Why have you offered to return as a judge for NSEC at The Big Bang North West 2016? It’s lovely to interact with children about science.
What’s the best part of judging? Every project is different, so every time it is about something new.
Do you have any advice for the students who are entering this year? Forget about applications, go for what will provide a discovery of something that we did not know before, or that your project answers a question you wanted answering – applications will follow.
Fun fact about yourself: I like Japanese Manga.
