How Geeky Were You As A Child?

  1. You weren’t super geeky as a kid. You probably went pond dipping once or twice, but were happier playing sport or making your own fun with your friends. But remember, it’s never too late to embrace your nerdy side.

  2. You were pretty geeky as a kid. You spent some time experimenting and probably made more than your fair share of homemade volcanoes and rockets. But you were just as happy with other activities too.

  3. You were very geeky as a kid. Science was probably one of your favourite subjects at school and you spent most of the holidays geeking out too. I mean, what’s the point of spending a day at the beach if you don’t dig around in some rock pools?
