On Sunday I had my own little science super shuttle tour at UCR. My guide was an up and coming analytical chemist : B. Now you might be wondering how does a beachlover end up spending a day in a science lab? Well, you never know where you will end up in life and this weekend the warm santa ana winds took me to UCR!My last experience in a science lab was in 12th grade when I finally took Biology ( I had been avoiding it!) This past weekend I jumped right in and watched science in motion! I tend to feel out of my element ( get it? ha ha!) when I am near science or math but not this weekend. I really enjoyed seeing how B spends his days. It is definitely hard work and experiments don't always go as planned or give you the data you were expecting. Hmmm sounds a little bit like chemistry and regular everyday life have a lot in common.
