Originally, the number of professions in science was supposed to be listed here. But there are so many that we couldn't add them all up. After all, there are a few hundred more professions than can be seen in Big Bang Theory, for example. For most people however, the list stops short at "researcher" or "chemical lab technician". Trick question: What do you call the person who analyses your blood when you go to the doctor's office? No idea? Got you! We want to change that and shine a light on all the interesting jobs in the field of science! Why? Because you can only choose science as a career path if you know all your options! Not everyone has a person who can open the door to the colourful world of science for them. So scroll down and open your mind to the colours of science!
