Following your passion is the greatest gift you could give to the world and to yourself. When that passion is science, it can mean exploring how the world works, building new machines and finding cures for diseases. Inspired by a conversation with Bill Nye and Hannah Hart, here are five tips for going after your dream.
Tip 1: Let your curiosity lead you
Let yourself be swept up in an idea, pursue a hypothesis and chase down answers.
Tip 2: Focus on your education
Putting in the time at school is absolutely necessary for pursuing a science-based career.
Tip 3: Test the waters
Go after internships in your field or ask to do a weeklong office observation to get a feel for things.
Tip 4: Be creative
Creativity is an essential part of science, whether it’s thinking outside the box when solving a problem or getting inventive when building your career.
Tip 5: Dont limit yourself
Don’t limit yourself or your dreams and you won’t go wrong.
