Working Conditions?

Most chemists operate in two worlds of work. One is the macroscopic world that you see, feel, and touch. Chemists also operate in the microscopic world that you can’t directly see, feel, or touch.

  • The macroscopic world involves lab coats — weighing out things like sodium chloride to create things like hydrogen gas. This is the world of experiments.

  • In the microscopic world, chemists work with theories and models. They may measure the volume and pressure of a gas in the macroscopic world, but they have to mentally translate the measurements into how close the gas particles are in the microscopic world.

Major Job Responsibilities

Some of the major job responsibilities are to ~

  • Work together
  • To remember the periodic table
  • To be patient
  • To work in a lab

What kind of education do you need to work as a chemist?

Chemical engineers usually take a class for science and technology.

Do I think I would like this job?

You don't know how much I've loved science and mixing chemicals as a kid! I love to make things explode, fizz, or just make a pretty mix of colors! I can also be just plain creative and make things. Such as new technology, a cure for cancer, faster working medicine, and things as such. I think I would have a ton of fun working as a chemical engineer.
