Favorite Biology Aspect

  • I really enjoy the health aspects of biology because the information that is learned is applicable to our lifestyle. The more we learn about human biology results in the more we learn about our own bodies. An example is learning that when a person eats too much salt, their body carries extra water which increases blood pressure because the heart has to pump more blood. This can be applied to a person's own diet and avoiding too much salt.

Favorite Computer Science Aspect

  • My favorite thing about computer science is the creative aspect of it. Within the past couple of decades, technology has become a pinnacle of our daily lives. The fact that one can create something that is useful to somebody or makes a technological process easier for somebody, through code, is fascinating.
