So sitting here, trying to finish my applications but really watching football, I came across one of my favorite websites: NOVA! Apart from their fabulous tv productions, they’ve started this awesome series called “The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers”. This is a great way of finding out something really interesting about researchers who you would assume only live their lives in the lab.
This is the zebrafish lab that I worked in for two summers, and there are some really interesting other people to check out on the side tab! Basically, you can still do something really intense and intellectual but have a fun hobby or interest too! You should also definitely check out all of the 30 second science pieces, because if you can understand what the lab is trying to do in 30 seconds then you can do it too! Being succinct and clear is key especially in such complex fields.
Happy rest of break!
