I can do science, me

Being a scientist myself, I was delighted that Alex’s school was running a science week this week. He’s learnt lots, from the water cycle, through to dissolving salt via something or other with yeast. The finale of the week was today’s Mad Scientist Day, where all the kids came dressed as… well… Mad Scientists.
It was a novelty for him, but to be honest, nothing short of a normal day for me.

Alex is now hugely enthusiastic about science, but that’s only because no-one has told him about the long hours and lousy wages yet.

  1. Well, there’s always the possibility that, by the time that matters to him, scientists will have become hugely respected and valued, and paid the kind of salaries currently reserved only for people who shuffle figures representing money between bank accounts.

    I didn’t say it was a strong possibility …

  2. Your kid has gotten big! Glad he seems to enjoy the science bit.

    I get the same problem with kids at school – they come and say “Sir, I want to be a computer technician!” and then I explain to them that they’ll earn somewhere between R2500 and R5000 a month and they go “Wow! So much!”.

    Aah well.
