Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium
Thursday, 14 August 2003
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.
