While I did not end up in one of the sciences featured in the PGSS 1985 curriculum, the experience did two things for me. First, it made me aware that there were a lot of other people out there who were just as scientifically curious as I was. That was not obvious from myhigh school experience. Second, it opened up insight into geneal principles of scientific inquiry and logic that I have continued to use in my career since then. Plus, it taught me that people interested in science can be fun, understandable, down to earth people and I try to reflect that in my own course development and teaching now.
