The rules of Science

June 10th, 2009 by liz

I have an undergrad working with me, and I’ve been slowly teaching him the rules of science. So far, we have experienced the following rules in action together:

1. Nothing works on the first try.

2. Everything breaks at least once.

3. Every way it can break it will break.

And today, we learned a new one:

4. Sometimes after banging your head against something for hours your professor will walk in, touch your experiment, and it will suddenly work.

Science is mean. I wonder if he’ll decide he likes science in the end?
