Why did you choose to study science?

January 4, 2011 at 8:40 am 2 comments

Dr Colin Hanbury at the University of Western Australia is conducting an international on-line survey as part of research on why people chose to study in science and science-related areas.

The survey is for anyone who completed tertiary science (and applied science) studies after leaving school – the greater the diversity of the respondents the better will be the results. You don’t have to be currently working in science-related areas. If you want your country and discipline to be represented then please participate.

Please forward us your response as well. Since Dr. Hanbury’s survey is not limited to scientists, it would be very interesting to hear what Canadian Biotechnologists have to say on the matter.

    interested in how you are mapping the mind – i.e. what process, what technology, what CAD software, and how you will be presenting the map?

    As a planner and surveyor, mapping has always fascinated me. Was a photogrammetrist and cartographic draftsmen in my 20s and now use CAD and GIS for planning purposes. Maybe you could also devise a pseudo GPS for the brain too?
