"A scientist is hardworking, studious, detail-oriented, observant, intelligent,
exacting, and patient. When I think of a scientist, I think of someone who sets out
to find the facts without predetermining what the outcome is. During this process a scientist
must be fair, honest and unbiased. A scientist must be exact by following all directions and
recording every step and observation, so that the experiment can be reduplicated. He/she must
check and double-check all of his/her work. A scientist is very important in our lives because
all of the experiments he/she does in the lab can affect our health, environment, nutrition,
and other aspects of our daily and future life." . . . Marisa
