How to interest children in science, and keep them interested, is a commonly discussed topic.  Over the past decade I have been fortunate enough to participate in many different outreach programs specifically designed to do just that.  Recently, I represented the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) at a middle school in the LA area.  There were a few goals we wished to achieve:

1.  To discuss what jobs are available for those with an interest in science.

2.  To explain our career paths and what research we perform.
