    time at Sandia National Laboratories, I interned under the department of WMD Threats and Aerosol Science. I saw men and women using their scientific and engineering backgrounds to study and understand systems that can be used to counteract chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. It was incredible to see and work on various projects that allowed for counter-terrorism. One of the biggest projects I worked on was our "Spray Knockdown System" it is a massive, almost 20-foot-tall, decontamination structure. It was a system that could easily counteract the effects of a biological weapon on large objects by rapidly releasing a specialized decontaminate. The decontaminate would be electrically charged so that it would stick to the object, similar to how rubbing a balloon on your hair lets it stick to a wall. It was incredible to see such a device built and to be a part of building it. I felt a fulfillment working at Sandia, that I was helping make America a safer place. I 'm the son of two immigrants who came to this country dirt poor. My parents talk about all the issues they faced, all the persecution and violence they had to deal…

    method of how to solve for x when x+1=2, and the homework questions were likely to be integral questions. They are totally different! Were I missed something during lecture? I questioned myself, and I paid ten times harder in the lecture afterwards, and the homework and exams still turned out to be some ridiculous or totally unrelated questions. The equation was likely to be Rome, though all roads lead to it, I have to make some turns before I can go straight on it. Maybe I am not smart…

    chlorophyll a are at the blue wavelengths of light, 425 nm approximately, and at the red wavelengths of light, 680 nm approximately (Karp 2009). On the other hand, chlorophyll b can also absorb wavelengths of light in the blue region, but specifically around 465 nm, while the red regions of wavelength can absorb closer to 655 nm. Although chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b are able to absorb blue and red wavelengths of light, both are able to absorb a greater intensity of blue wavelengths than red…

    Our group observed a computer lab for game design majors on three separate occasions. The reason we chose a game design lab is that there are numerous interactions that tend to occur simultaneously. While the lab is a place designed for productivity, students use the space for other a range of activities, such as working on school assignments, socializing, or engaging in recreation. We expect to observe behaviors like these in this setting. The computer lab is a large room, comprised of curved…

    This research lab was done in order to determine the environment roly poly’s prefer best, moist or dry. Prior to conducting the lab on how moisture affects roly poly behavior, information had been collected from multiple sources that suppose and support the conclusion. roly poly’s tend to be attracted to moist environments. From surveying other experiments and reports on roly poly behavior, a hypothesis was developed that stated roly polys will migrate to moist surroundings because it will…

    research there is years of work and collaboration with other labs to get a publication out to the science community. The life style of bench work was not a glamourous job, but rather a dedicated and challenging job. A publication on the signaling of one pathway into cancer signaling does not necessarily mean a leap to finding a cure for cancer. Researchers devote decades into studying a single pathway in the complex world within a cell to before truly having a break thorough research that can be…
