USA Science and Engineering Festival
Kids are actually born scientists. As any parent knows who's watched Junior drop a series of different things from his high chair to see what happens when they fall, children are innate experimenters.
When I was little, I hated a lot of things, but most of all I hated math. By extension, I disliked anything that stank of equations: physics, chemistry, technology, engineering. And then something changed.
My curiosity for science began early in life with my passion for space. I was 13 years old during the first lunar landing. Seeing human beings on another celestial body opened my eyes to the infinite possibilities of technology.
