"My passion has always been in understanding how things work. I was one of those annoying high school kids that would always ask, 'But why? But why?'. I would be told that I have to wait until later before I could delve deeper into that sort of thing. Now that I'm doing my Undergraduate Degree I'm starting to get answers to some of those questions.” More...

"I’ve really enjoyed the advanced courses which I’ve started doing this year. It’s closer to what you would have to do in a real lab, in terms of having to plan and manage several experiments at once. If you aren’t offered the advanced courses in your first year, I definitely recommend working hard in your first year to get the marks required to do them in your second." More...
