You might want to be a scientist
Audience: High School
Description: I never really considered a career in science while I was in high school, mostly because I didn't know anything about it. In this presentation I will talk about my life in science, from graduate school chasing nematode worms around in pig intestines...not for the squeemish...to my life now as a tenure member of the University of Florida faculty. Life in science is a lot different than what most students expect, and some may find in an attractive alternative to consider.

Keywords: benefits
career
downsides
lifestyle
requirements
Duration: 1 hour or less
Fee: Expenses Only
Comments: I think a lot of high school students may benefit from this talk, and it may lead some to consider science as a career.
