Deirdre Newman Scientists are geeky. Science is not for me. Science doesn't offer many options. These are some of the myths scientists from UC Irvine tried to dispel last week at Costa Mesa High School as part of the school's annual Ask-a-Scientist night. More than 100 students came to mingle with marine biologists, zoologists, restoration ecologists and a variety of other UCI scientists. The forum enabled the students to ask questions about their science fair projects and general questions about the field of science.
