I like science because I get to work on stuff that I am interested in and everyday I get to learn something new. Science scratches that part of your brain that loves puzzles and riddles.
The best thing about being a scientist is when what you are working on works – most of the time it doesn’t. If the results of your experiment or simulation are good then that’s a great feeling.
There are other perks too – you get to travel, meet new people, talk about your work and learn about theirs.
