Written by:

Dianne KamfonikAn essay by M.S.T student Dianne Kamfonik was one of 13 selected for publication in the Jan. 6 issue of Science in the NextGenVoices section. Science solicited essays that addressed the question “How will the practice of science change in your lifetime?” and printed the 13 top submissions in their entirety. Three other MIT students’ essays were among the top 50. Kamfonik’s essay begins: “Science is becoming increasingly accessible to minorities, women, and people from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Since more people are now being exposed to science, I predict that the speed and significance of scientific advancements will increase dramatically over the next 100 years.”
