  • 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'.
