personal childhood interests in science

that might have steered you into the sciences as a career

This is for a project that I've undertaken regarding informal science as
a motivational aid.

 

Please register positive and negative responses

 

Did you have a Lionel, AC Gilbert or other

 

Chemistry set

Erector set - YES

Microscope

Physics set

please name additional sets you might have had

 

I had an extensive Lionel

Did you go to science museums - NO

 

Did you read Popular Science, science and mechanics, Scientific American
or other magazines. Please list name the ones you read on a regular basis
and tell me why you liked or did not like them.  NO

 

Name radio or TV shows that might have influenced you.  There were
no TV shows then.  NO to radio.

 

Name movies that might have influenced you.  Rarely went to
movies.  Saw only "Lassie Come Home", "Bambi",
and "Bells of St. Mary's", which had no influence on my
choosing physics.

 

Are there any science books for kids that you might have read and
remember fondly.

Perhaps books such as Microbe Hunters by de Kruif.  One, Two,
Three, ...Infinity
by George Gamow.

 

Were you influenced by Martin Gardner, Carl Sagan, or other. please
name.  Asimov and Gardner came later, i.e. after grade 8.

 

Any other informal science sources that you can think of would also be
appreciated.

 

Of course, during those Grammar School years I read over 300 books a
year, but not science in particular.



John


Thanks in advance.
