One PhD in physics, 9 years designing science museum exhibits and countless hours spent cultivating a social life with non-socially awkward nerds later, here’s what I know:
- Normal people do science. No pocket protector required. (although the stereotypes do have some basis in reality…not gonna lie to you)
- Most people who think they’re allergic to science actually find it kind of cool when it’s explained well.
- Some of the most mind-blowing things you will ever see are scientific – even that drink you’re having at the bar has some cool science lurking inside it.
In addition to a PhD in physics, I’m a black belt (twice over), play violin (and have since I was 5), I’ve chased tornadoes with the pros, blown up cars in the name of ‘science’ (it was as awesome as it sounds), and I’ve worked as a model and actor (even grad students need to pay the bills).
