Hi everybody, my name’s Meaghan Simone, I’m a freshman currently majoring in Graphic Design. I’m from Long Island, NY which is a good 4.5 hours from here. What’s so cool about Long Island, you ask? Well, other than beaches, some 3 star hibachi restaurants, and an abundance of car dealerships the answer is: nothing. Which is why being so far away is kind of a blessing.
What brought me to SC 200? In all honesty, the environmental science class times just didn’t work with mine. Then I actually read through the course description and realized it was by far the most interesting and challenging class I had found, and it just seemed really cool to me. It didn’t fit the standard definition of “science” that we learned in school (just know the facts and definitions if you wanna pass), and I just really need a class where my brain can actually do something. Naturally, this turned into the perfect class for me.
Why is the artsy-fartsy kid not a scientist but in a science class? I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to be one. I really do love science (specifically the kind of science this class has to offer), since I was a little kid, but in the end my passion for art takes gold. Needless to say, looking at this class is making my love for science grow a lot more, and it’s making me feel the same excitement and passion for it i had when I was little. You know what REALLY sealed the deal? The fact that one of our teachings is “Do Aliens visit Earth?” WHO DOESN’T LOVE ALIENS?!? Anyway, here is a link to one of my favorite alien cases. Live long and prosper guys, can’t wait to get to know all of you 🙂
