Special Science Communication issue
Please be concrete and specific and address your commentary to both scientists and non-scientists, including potential scientists now in high school.
Suggested issues to address/questions to answer: (please use only as an orientation)
What were the concrete realities that inspired you to become a scientist (e.g., a mentor, a profound curiosity about the cosmos, birds, life forms)?
What have you come to understand personally as the nature of science and the essential elements of scientific research?
What picture did you have of your life as a scientist and how did that pan out? Relatedly, what are the positive elements of being a scientist?
What inspires you in your work?
How do you see the scientific work you are doing as contributing to both knowledge and society?
The above questions are not meant to be answered directly but rather to inform an eloquent personal statement that you would like to make on the benefits and management of scientific research.
