Robert Winston on being a Scientist
An insight into the profession with a leading voice
Hello. My name is Robert Winston. When I wanted to be an engine driver at the age of seven, then I changed up wanting to be a scientist. And then I really wanted to do something totally different. And I did do science at university with medicine, but actually I didn't really decide to do that until after I left school. So I was not clear what I wanted to do. And I think it's a very good piece of advice. Just remember that you have far more than you realise as you study at school and you should try and look at everything because you don't need to be a scientist. And I have to say too, that you think that I'm clever, cause I'm a scientist, but actually I'm no more clever than you are.
