  • Profile Question 1
    When and why did you decide to go into a science career?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    Science was always fun. It was challenging and I wanted to learn new things. It allowed me to think analytically but be creative as well. Thinking out of the box is always helpful. Science is hard but worth the headaches.

  • Profile Question 2
    What lessons have you learned in your career about how science works?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
    Remember your science basics as well as retain the information. It is not just a memory game but how to use that information to make experiments and explain it to others.

  • Profile Question 3
    What is tough about being a scientist?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    Science is very demanding. In all jobs there are deadlines and such but with science many months of hard work may turn out incorrect in a matter of minutes.

Hi everyone,

Great work in the project so far. What other observations have you noticed. 

Happy Monday,



Hi Team,

Wow, congrats on the seed germination.  How cool is that!

If the other seeds are taking over, maybe push the not-germinated seeds to the side a little and try to gently push them back down in the soil so they have a chance to germinate as well.

What other observations have you seen with your seeds?  Look closely to see if there is anything else, sometimes changes are very small.  

Also, make sure you write down all your observations and changes in your lab notebook for the final write-up.

Keep up the awesome work!
