If you are considering full-time scientific research, try to get a work placement in a university department so you can see first hand what it’s like. It’s a relatively relaxed, flexible environment, but there is a certain degree of self-motivation needed. 

So I would say you need to be able to push  yourself and be proactive in terms of setting up collaborations with other scientists etc.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

When

Monday, July 23, 2018 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM

All camps will run from 10am to 4pm each day in the PJ Carroll Building. There are different types of camps, taking into account the different experience of the participants and different depth to which topics are covered. 

The ReBOOT camp original is for 11-14 year old beginners with an interest in Computing, but very little experience. The BOOTed Camp is a step up from the ReBOOT, good if you return for a second year.
