Yes, I am extremely fond of Science. Science is the building block of our today’s modern world and from a very young age, I have always questioned the world. Science almost always gave me the answers to my never-ending torrent of queries, and it continues to do so. Having answers to my questions compelled me to want to know more.

I have done number of things with science. As I remember, once I made a food science project to transform drinks into semi-solid balls that pop in your mouth.
