Question: What about science fascinates you?
Answer: Science is a subject that covers almost every topic you could possibly imagine. It’s what makes our world the beautiful place it is. Science can be explosive, delicate, or awe-inspiring! I’m currently extremely interested in earth science and environmental science, but you could do practically anything with science. If knowledge was solid, all the knowledge in the universe would probably make the universe explode.
Question: What hobbies or extra-curricular activities do you enjoy and why?
Answer: There are almost too many to count. I love Scottish Country Dancing, because it’s really social and it’s a challenge to try and remember all of the dances and moves. I play electric bass and sing in a rock band (music is a HUGE part of my life). I'm a member of our homeschool science club where we all study for Science Bowl and Science Olympiad, I act in a play every semester, I perform in a children's improv group, and of course, I've loved doing Young Scientist Challenge!
Question: What career do you want to pursue and why?
Answer: I’m not really sure right now because there are so many wonderful things I could do with my life, but I’m leaning toward environmental sciences and film-making. Both would be really fun and exciting because I would be able to travel all around the world. I think doing both would be a really cool way to make science interesting for the next generation, and I could meet lots of new people and work on exciting new ideas and projects.
Question: What is your favorite school subject?
Answer: I enjoy science and geography. I find both subjects a really interesting way to study the environment and the world we live in.
