Skype a Scientist
Last week we spoke to a scientist through Skype! His name was Andrew and he is a microbiologist from Stanford University in California. We prepared questions to ask him about how science is used in his work and life. His answers to our questions was very intriguing.
“He studied micro-organisms in mouse poop! Ew!” – Zac
“He studied the digestive tracts of the human body” – Shyla
“He loves to figure out how bacteria grows” – Kathleen
“The only way Andrew’s work is related to Albert Einstein is the portrait of Einstein created using bacteria” – Balram and Vivaan
“He studies small growing things” – Kathleen
“There are a million trillion trillion microbes in the world” – Saad and Meron
“He was inspired by his middle school teacher” – Shyla
