I have refined my initial project idea, and I am now conducting interviews with various individuals involved in the biotechnology industry. I have asked them about their college and career paths in order to get a better understanding of how universal the biotechnology industry can be. They have shared personal insights and advice to viewers who may be interested in learning more about what opportunities are available to them in the biotechnology industry. Through this project, I am able to help high school students like myself find an interest in STEM careers and opportunities that may arise for them in the future.
I did not anticipate changing my project idea from psychology and neuroscience to the more broarder spectrum of STEM. Within the biotechnology industry, many degree opportunities exist, and I am excited to be sharing these opportunities with fellow high schoolers. I think it was a good idea to switch to a broarder aspect of STEM and feel that it is more beneficial to the broarder high school population.
