It was a typical day at the Museum. the sun was shining and the
birds were chirping. I was walking through the offices of our
awesome educators when I was introduced to Pearl.
Pearl, at age 10 was full of enthusiasm. After only about 35
seconds it was clear to me that Pearl loved science. So I
decided to tell her about my crazy science alter ego. This
alter ego is a really cool chick who loves health and biological
science and loves telling people about how our cells and organs and
bodies all work. "The only problem," I confided to Pearl, "is that
she doesn't have a name." Pearl nodded and then she got a glint in
her eye and said she'd think of something. I went off to a meeting
(being an adult can mean lots of meetings it turns out) and when I
returned to my office I was delighted to find this:
Thus was born, science's newest super hero "Yo Pearl- The
Science Girl". She is my super cool alter ego that can turn
everyday boring "science" into real life super hero sized "how
cool is that!"
When I'm not being an adult at the Museum, you can find me in my
mask and cape bringing science answers to you through the Molecular
Cell web site.
To exploration and beyond!
