Excerpted from blog post by Eric Kennedy, PhD student
“As you move from undergraduate programs to grad school, you begin to learn that there’s more to science than meets the eye. Science isn’t the factoids in introductory textbooks, but rather the ideas, conversations, and processes of asking good questions in rigorous ways, together. Indeed, even if you put aside the tangible benefits of volunteering with a conference (at AAAS, this includes free registration and an online subscription to Science), it’s still one of the most valuable things I’ve done during my Ph.D. for the professional relationships it has helped me foster.” – Read full post on the AAAS website.
