Over the course this year’s Geek-A-Long, we are honoring math and science 5 times. Caffeine, Pi, and the Periodic Table appeared earlier this year, and there is one more to come after this. When we sat down to decide what the 2014 squares would be, there was actually some contention over how much space certain genre’s and fandoms ought to get. But there were 2 areas we were in total agreement on: sci-fi/fantasy literature and science/math. We would be failing you if we didn’t give adequate space to the 2 pools from which the original geeks sprung. Of course the issue of which aspects of those to include was a much harder decision. ;)

For my science squares, I tied to hit on some of the most important contributions to the scientific world. There are too many to name, but I think the discovery of DNA is pretty high up there. By understanding DNA we are able to begin to treat and even prevent genetic disorders. Honestly, the applications are endless, and as a future doctor they are near and dear to my heart.
