Why did we choose to major in Materials Science and Engineering?
We reflected on this decision today, and it came down to a few reasons for the both of us.
📝 “I daydreamed about destroying cancer cells with nanobots after taking an online course in nanotechnology in high school”
📝 “I loved chemistry in high school and wanted to explore the area further at Tech”
📝 “I was inspired by the idea that the smallest things can make the biggest difference”
📝 “Subconsciously, when I was little I liked to modify the properties of sand at the beach by changing the amount of shells that I put into the sand, how wet the sand was, etc.”
📝 “I wanted to continue studying something that was Chemistry related in college”
📝 “A lot of the ways that I saw that I could make a positive impact on the world in high school were in solving issues that had a materials science component to it”
