In one of my earliest memories, I’m sitting on the back porch of our little house in San Jose, California, conducting science experiments. These ‘experiments’ involved an array of Tupperware cups containing various amounts of muddy water that I would dump from one to the other. It was what my mom called a mess. But in my mind, it was science! As a little girl I was fascinated by the idea of understanding how things work, and using that knowledge to create something new and wonderful.
