Being a scientist is really fun! It can be really different depending on what you focus on, so a chemist might spend lots of time in a lab mixing different solutions, whereas a biologist might spend more time outside, looking at plants and animals in their natural habitat. Generally, as a scientist I have the chance to spend my time learning new and exciting things and talking to all my friends and co-workers about the exciting things they are learning. I think that is what makes being a scientist so fun, it is always different and it is always new – I often think I have read everything I could about a subject (like the Internet!) only to find out that all new things are being discovered across the world – it constantly challenges you to do more and learn more.
Being a scientist is being paid to find out about stuff that interests you (whatever that stuff may be). What can possibly be more fun than that? A job doesn’t really seem like a job when you enjoy what you do, so it’s really like getting money to have fun and telling lots of other people about it too 🙂
I love being a scientist! It can be a lot of fun. Everyday is different and because there are so many things to discover, whatever field of science you work in, there is always something new to do or new ways of doing things. Being a scientists also means you get to talk to a lot of people and you get to travel a lot. It’s like a big community!
