DAVID - RUNNING EXPERIMENTS
I am working on a solution which helps deal with mosquitoes that may carry malaria or other diseases. Some of the key pieces of information that I needed to complete my design are not available in the current literature, so I had to conduct these experiments on my own. Dealing with live insects is especially difficult because they may move around and be difficult to collect. Most problems cannot be solved without research, especially when the problem doesn't occur near you and you have never experienced it before. You need enough information to understand why your problem occurs and how it manifests itself before you can get started.
As a scientist, being organized is extremely important for running experiments and building prototypes. Without organization, there is no controlled environment in which you can your tests, so the outcome of the experiment may not be correct.
