Hi everyone, my name is Alexandra and I’m from Bergen County, New Jersey. I’m currently undecided but considering majoring in psychology. I’m not really a science-type of person but my academic advisor said this was a good course for people who did not like science. With that being said, I figured I’d try out the class to see if I’d like it. So far, this class seems like a good fit for me – the topics seem fascinating and I’m interested in learning how science affects our everyday lives.
As of right now, I do not plan to become a science major. I took biology, physics, and chemistry in high school and I did not do that well in any of them (I almost failed chemistry). Therefore, I don’t think it would be the best decision to major in any type of science field.
I think science can be engaging if you can relate it to things that you are interested in. I found an article that might be interesting to anyone who has a coffee addiction like I do. This article explains how scientists performed a study on how a gene affects the breakdown of coffee in the body and how much caffeine we are actually retaining.
