Somewhere during undergraduate days, all students encounter a fork in the science education road. One way leads to teaching, along a path festooned with education, psychology and "general" courses. This road leads into a people oriented, less specialized and very demanding form of science activity. The other fork in that road leads toward specialization and the "publish or perish" life of a university or industrial scientist. College students who take this other fork become non-teaching scientists, researchers, authors and those who are invited to speak at symposia. They lead a different sort of professional life.
