  • Profile Question 3
    Can you describe your attitude toward science when you were in high school?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    When I was in high school, I took all of the courses (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science) expected for college preparation in anticipation of majoring in a scientific subject area. In retrospect, I felt somewhat unprepared for the immersion and intensity in subsequent college science classes. Some of this related to lack of field work for instance in biology, while there was a disconnect between learning about theories/principles and scientific application. There was a void when learning about 'scientific methodology and interpretation of results'.

  • In addition to English, I am comfortable communicating with students in the following languages:
    (not set)

  • Capacity: How many teams at a time are you comfortable working with?

I am glad to see your experimental results.  The graph and chart look good.  I would suggest adding the units to the Y axis (vertical axis). Have you summarized your conclusions?

Thank you for the update.  Any ideas from your investigative team about what caused the mold with the apple juice and Mountain Dew?
