Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
Wednesday, 9 August 2006
McKinly Laboratory
University of Delaware

When does a scientist become a scientist?  It is not when a person knows many facts and even understands in depth some aspect of the natural world.  I would suggest the transition occurs when curiosity about a phenomena leads to an inquiry for new knowledge.  This can occur in a person with little or lots of knowledge about a subject.  It is an attitude of inquiry.
