What Do Scientists Do All Day?

Abstract

In this final part of our exploration of how professional scientists work, Joan visits working scientists and engineers. Most people do not often get to see these people at work, either because the work requires a lab that would be pretty disrupted if people visited all the time, or in some cases because a lot of their work takes place in regions that are remote, dangerous, or both. In other cases, the work is just largely internal, with interaction between colleagues from time to time for inspiration. First, though, you need to understand the difference between a scientist and an engineer.
