Consider a Career in Science

February 4, 2011

Scouting assists young people in choosing a career path, helping them to develop skills and expand their horizons.  I encourage scouts to be scientific in all their endeavors, regardless if they choose a career in beekeeping, medicine, music, computer programming, or horse trading.  Cell Biology, Medicine, Biochemistry, and other related science fields offer enormous opportunities to explore the world, have a good job, and have fun doing it.  Many people seek a PhD in these fields.  Students must, however, overcome numerous obstacles in their quest for an advanced degree.  Sooner or later students will inherit a problem that ends up being more than they bargained for.  Watch this video for a clear understanding of the frustrations inherent to getting a good education (rated PG-13).
