MoleClues TV: Comments from attendees at Molecular Frontiers Symposium & Youth Forum in Stockholm 2008

MoleClues TV presents Molecular Frontiers Symposium & Youth Forum May 30-31, 2008 Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Stockholm, Sweden. What did the teenagers who attended the symposium think? Well, it has given a really good impression and kind of destroyed the image of scientists as grey old men that only sit in studies and do research. It has given them a better look, if you can say so and made it all very much interesting. We get to know a lot of things that they are doing at the moment. It's fun to see what scientists have to ask their fellow scientists about in their research since everyone can't specialize in all fields. This is really advanced stuff, so you realize that those who aren't 100% working with this they have a lot of things to learn. It was quite interesting that everybody wasn’t so serious, people were laughing and it felt like a group, where everybody knew each other. I thought it was quite scary as well, but people were coming and they were talking to us like we were almost like them, although we didn't know anything! That was really interesting. I’ve really enjoyed being here and it was really interesting hearing all these sessions and what they had to say. It was very fun! The general view from a teenager’s point of view is that science is really boring, or that scientists in general are really boring. But after seeing these men and women who put so much work into science come out and show their personality instead just makes me really happy! And they make jokes and it’s really fun to be here and talk to them and they really connect to you. I have got more interested in chemistry now than I was before and I think that the professors have had very interesting things to tell us about. During my stay here I have discovered how big the world of chemistry really is and that makes me happy because then there could be something interesting for everybody. I hope I can find something that‘s for me. I’ve had this feeling that in science, everything was discovered but by going to this I’ve heard there are lots of things we don’t know, actually so it really feels like there is a new field to study and I am so inspired to become a scientist myself!
