      I have had a lot of experiments go wrong, science is all about making mistakes and then learning from them!

      Usually if it goes wrong I find out why it went wrong and then try to think of a way to make it go right and try again. It took my a year and a half to make my first polymer because lots of things were going wrong and I had to think of ways to fix them all! Sometimes science can go slowly.
