Science is a way of knowing and that it what a scientist is all about, try to
uncover the mysteries of the Universe and of all of its parts. There are many
types of scientists. Scientists that do field work, scientists that do
laboratory work, and scientists that to theoretical work. The description of
what they do varies according to specialties and interests, but they all share
a common trait: curiosity, i.e., the need to do research so we can learn
