“I’ve always loved watching how different species interact in their ecosystems, and I think that interest was sparked in middle school when my science class scooped a big bucket of water, mud, algae, and other flora into an aquarium, and then spent the next few weeks observing all of the different organisms and species interactions under magnifying glasses. It’s a not an experiment in the true sense of the scientific method since it was literally just observation, but it was one of the more impactful experiences that has stuck with me over the years.”
