This is nerdy me in sixth grade with my make-shift lab. This was the germification stage of cloning a carrot seed for my science fair project.
I wanted to be a scientist for the majority of my life, particularly a genetic engineer. What drew me to it was the ability to trust in the facts, push our perceived realities, and design things down to the molecule.
No matter what our government says, the experts are who we should listen to. Just as we want to be heard and validated in our own work, so should the dedicated scientists doing all they can to protect our little blue planet.
I couldn't #MarchForScience today, but I've donated to several groups encouraging kids in STEAM, particularly Girls Who Code and National Math + Science Initiative. I encourage you to do the same. #HappyEarthDay #Throwback
