I adore this comic by @elisegravel.
“So, yeah, YOU can be a scientist, too!” #science #art #education
Spoiler : everyone is curious too. But society thought it through. Most will wash houses all day or dig potatoes, and few will be awarded to not do any of that.
That's what we have grades and exams for.
yup. this is awesome. i was a scientist for more than 20 years, co-author on over 30 publications, published in places like Nat Comms and Cell. three first authorships, Participated on a submission in which a childhood disorder was named for the first time.
and was never able to get into grad school bc my baccalaureate grades were not good enough. (it's not only when we were 'young' ;)
It’s actually a fascinating intersection between cultural representations of “scientists”, “geniuses”, social expectations and awareness vs self doubt in the context of fathoming oneself in either of the first two categories. No matter who the person is, science is always the first route if you’ve at all got enough awareness to value the growth of awareness in the first place. Unless someone is misrepresenting science, every other choice equals less self-awareness. 🌎❤️🦹♂️
