“Magical things can happen when you enthusiastically open your mouth on the internet.” – Kevin Zelnio
Science writer and marine biologist Kevin Zelnio started the Twitter hashtag #IamScience last month, encouraging scientists to share their individual stories about their traditional or unconventional paths that brought them to where they are today. The response was overwhelming, with hundreds of tweets pouring in over just a few days.Mindy Weisberger compiled some of the tweets and added Reckless Kelly’s “Wicked Twisted Road” to create this video. If readers of this post can share their thoughts about how they got into their profession including science that would be great.
