Encouraging Student Exploration Matt H. is currently in the fourth year of a medical doctorate program at the University of California, San Francisco. His primary interest is in global health, and he is currently utilizing a Doris Duke Foundation grant to conduct community-based health research in rural Kenya.
Matt got his start as a participant in SCI://TECH:
I first explored my interest in scientific experimentation in seventh grade science class by developing a project to submit to the science fair. EfTA’s science fairs honed my interests…The extensive lab work I experienced through science fair projects helped prepare me to conduct independent lab research early in my undergraduate studies…EfTA’s science fairs provided me with opportunities to practice presentation skills and technical writing, and perhaps most importantly, fostered an ongoing sense of curiosity, of constantly asking, “Why?” I very much appreciate the opportunity created by Education for Tomorrow Alliance to start the process of scientific inquiry early in my education.
