Maybe it was a good book on some fascinating phenomena. Perhaps it was a starry night or visit to a zoo. Perhaps, it was the chemistry teacher you had in high school. Often, those with an interest in science can point to some influencing factors or moments that triggered their pursuit of scientific knowledge. In the process, like a child having just read their first book, many scientists-in-training feel an inexplicable urge to share what they have gathered. But is it possible to take both courses, to teach and to “do” science? Or are they separate branches from the same tree, roads diverging at the point where research and education take separate paths?
