Hey non-science majors! I'm a junior IST major this year. I was desperately in need of another gen ed science class that wouldn't completely destroy my GPA. Science was never my strongest subject in school, but I still loved it. Sc200 seemed like the perfect class for me. I think science is fascinating and I love learning about things that are relevant to my life such as "Do sugary drinks cause obesity?", but I'm not so interested in the process of researching something that I don't know the answer to. In my major, there always seems to be an answer with logic and reasoning behind any question I have. I like knowing that something is right or wrong.

I do however enjoy travelling, especially to national parks. I was on vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine a few weeks ago, and spent a few days exploring in Acadia National Park. If you've never been there, I highly recommend it. The scenery is gorgeous and there's plenty of hiking trails and places to swim, kayak, and fish. Below is a picture of Thunder Hole. During high tide, the water rushes in and makes a sound that is surprisingly similar to a clap of thunder. If you want to learn more about Acadia, check out this website http://www.nps.gov/acad/index.htm .

I've been to Acadia National Park as well! Have you ever been there at sunrise? It's the first place the sunlight hits the United States everyday.
