Hey everyone! My name is Valerie and I am a senior. I have always been interested in science and breakthroughs that happen in scientific research, because they are so important to our everyday lives. Although I’ve had interest, science was usually my weakest subject. My issue with high school science classes were that a lot of the concepts that we were tested on were things that were not visible to the human eye. For example, it is difficult for me to visualize atoms so I always had trouble understanding them and how something so small could connect back to my life. I took a Science 2.0 course in high school which was all about current scientific topics and we even spent a few classes watching the movie, Inception, and discussing theories. I really enjoyed that class, because it felt relevant. Still, I am not a science major, because I never did well when I was tested in my traditional science classes. I prefer business and learning about Supply Chains.I did not plan to take a Science gen-ed my Senior year, but after doing miserably in Astrology last semester I needed three more credits. I am taking this course, because I have heard that it helps you gain appreciation for Science.
I recently heard this about bananas going extinct. The article is a a little old, but I heard about the potential for bananas going extinct just this week. I would like to learn more about this, because I love chocolate banana smoothies.
