"[SERTS tutor] informed our group that she gets a very minimal stipend, just enough to pay for what she needs like food, clothing, and rent."

"By doing these experiments, the researcher hopes to get published in a Scientific Journal such as 'Science' or 'Journal'."

"This whole publishing process can take three to six months. The worst part is that the researchers do not even make any money off of this."

"I could now explain why a bridge failed or how to strengthen steel for ship design. You never know when that information may come in handy!"

X-ray diffusion patterns (X-ray diffraction)

"While neither of these machines are dangerous (unless you are particularly clumsy)..."

"...there are many precautions that are taken...[SERTS tutor] has to wear safety glasses to protect her eyes from any harmful pieces of metal shooting at her during her experiments."

"...they must not waste time...and thus a considerable quantity of caffeine is used to ensure that they can maximize their time use effectively..."

"...I had not previously imagined that scientist would, in ways akin to a rock star, spend hours preparing for a single, short duration event where all her hard work would pay off..."

"...I have always pictured a scientific lab as an all white room with tons of security, breakable objects and, people walking around in lab coats with containers that have the skull with cross bones on it."

"All scientific projects are either inspired by some incident in history, the fact that we are facing a problem and need to find a solution, or in some cases both."

"...which would intern [sic] create a more efficient solar cell capturing more energy from each wave of light."
