Paying it back

May 19 2017 Published by under Mentoring, Outreach

This week I've been working a major outreach event that seeks to give  underrepresented minority college students training and further opportunities in science. I was honestly apprehensive to take a week out of the lab right now when things are incredibly busy, but this has been good for both the soul and the mind. I've interacted with people I've been meaning to meet, people I wanted to meet, made new connections and most of all, helped train the next generation. The curiosity and wonderment of these kids reminds you why we got into this business in the first place: Science is fucking fun! Doing stuff that few or none have done before is exhilarating. As we come to a close its been really fun and I'm glad I got the opportunity to do this.
