1. What examples of learning by "happy accident" have you experienced in your own life? One time, by accident, I was taking a test, it was a “bubble” test. You know, where you have to fill in the bubbles to pick you answer. Well I was taking this test, and there was a few questions that I filled in the wrong bubble. If memory serves me right, there was about ten questions that I filled the wrong bubble in without knowing at first. I noticed it just as I was finishing my test, but because it was a timed test, I didn’t have time to fix the questions. Well lucky me, 8 out of those 10 questions, I got right. So if I would have gone with the answers that I was going to put down, I would have failed the test. Lucky me. 2. What do you think it means for a person (especially a scientist) to have a "prepared mind," as Pasteur describes? I think that it means to prepare yourself for your work. To have everything in order on what you are going to do. Knowing what you are going to do before you do it.

What about science makes it particularly good at allowing people to analyze their accidents? I think that because most of science, it is all trial and error. Its testing your theory’s out, but never knowing if what you are doing is really going to work. Science is all about mistakes, the more mistakes you make, the closer you will come to the right answer. 5. What are some risks associated with research that involves chance? [Hint: Do some reading about Marie and Pierre Curie http://www.energyquest.ca.gov/scientists/curie.html When it involves chance, you never know what is going to happen. Things could go horribly wrong, and you really never know, depending on what it is you are doing, if you are going to get seriously hurt. You just don’t know....
