      I would improve my building’s zoology museum to help when School students and members of the public visit.

      Our zoology museum is a great place for our students to learn about the different shapes and patterns animals take and how evolution has created this diversity. We open the doors of our museum several times a year, and especially to students in Transition Year of secondary school. We also invite students from schools in the Trinity Access Programme so students who have not had a chance to see the inside of a University can come and be inspired by what we do.

      I would use the money to improve the museum so that school students can come and have a better experience during their visit. This might include buying software for a computer in the museum so that they can find out more about the animals in our collection there and then rather than having to wait and visit a library later.

      You can read my FULL PLAN on my profile, here’s the summary though 🙂

      cienceXstudents.com! Science by students is an innovation in science writing. I’m going to pick 4 schools in Ireland and give 1 class in each the tools you need for reporting science – a digital camera, a voice recorder, and more! scienceXstudents will be a website where students like you write about funny, interesting, and/or important science issues, for people all over the world to read. (Because too much science is written by old people!)
