I am very passionate about science. I think it is very important for future students to have a strong background in science and engineering. I support increased funding for STEM programs and incorporating more engineering courses earlier into our student’s curriculum. The reason I am so passionate about science is because I believe it is vital to produce more scientists and engineers in order for the future of our country and economy to remain globally competitive. I also have dedicated a significant portion of my existence to studying science, technology, engineering and math.
I also know that science competency is crucial to the survival of our species. Science illiteracy is rampant in the United States as we are one of the only advanced countries who systematically deny scientific theories because they conflict with our political or religious ideology. I really applaud and admire the work of Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson in their role as science educators without becoming militantly iconoclastic.
Some of my favorite and best known subjects in science include:
- Chemistry (I was very interested in inorganic chemistry, organic not so much)
- Atmospheric Pollution
- Climate Change and Climate Science
Some areas where I know some but want to learn more:
- String Theory
- Particle Physics
- Quantum Mechanics
- Evolutionary Biology
- Embryology & Stem Cell Research
- Dimensional Physics
- Relativity, Time Dilation, and Time Travel
- Neuroscience (the brain is such an amazing and mystifying organ, and there is so much we simply do not know about it)
- Computer Science & Computer Engineering (working on this now)
I also love pictures of space. One of the best places to see the best images is NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day.
