My experience attending PGSS convinced me to pursue a biology degree in college and a career in the sciences in general. I see regularly and am in contact with many of the friends that I made at PGSS, even though it was over 5 years ago. PGSS was my first real experiencewith scientific research and the supportive scientific community at PGSS really influenced me in a positive way. I would hate to see future generations of potential scientists miss out on this amazing opportunity!
