Using Technology

Patrick | future scientist or engineer

There are many career choices in the world. Some people become accountants, others become zookeepers. Personally, I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. There are so many possibilities for my life. Luckily, I have several more years before I have to decide what I want to be when I grow up. I know for sure that I want to do something with technology, preferably in science or engineering. Science and engineering have always interested me and using technology to further advance those areas of study seems like a very enjoyable career. Some of the possible jobs in those fields are aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering. These careers both seem very interesting because they use technology to create really cool things. Aerospace engineers create airplanes and vehicles for use in space. Space has always interested me and aerospace engineering seems like a very interesting career because it can help mankind make leaps forward in their knowledge of the universe. Mechanical engineers can create really cool machines and gadgets that everyone can use. These machines and gadgets can help make people's everyday lives easier. These careers interest me a lot and I would like to spend my life doing one of these jobs or something very similar.
