      Hi @sami1204. I haven’t done much teaching yet. I taught some university students when I did my PhD and I teach people in the lab all the time but I’ve never been a teacher or a university lecturer. I think it would be really good fun to teach and I do love going to science fairs and doing experiments with school children. Hopefully in the future I’ll get to do some more teaching. It’s very hard work though having to talk all day long!

      I am actually teaching part time this summer! It’s a very rewarding and fun experience, although the groups I’m teaching to are formed of 6 students only. I imagine that teaching to a bigger class is much challenging, but yes, I’m considering the option of becoming a teacher after my research 🙂
