Today we’re pleased to introduce you to TanoCalvenoa. He’s our “Science Rocks” Contributor on Squidoo.
Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
My topic is science, and specifically, the indisputable fact that science rocks! There’s so much to learn, and to know, that no one could ever master all of it, plus it’s constantly evolving as we learn more and more. The methods of study of the physical universe and the resulting discoveries are endlessly fascinating and something I could never get bored with.
Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I have loved science as long as I can remember, since I was a little kid. It began with a love of maps, studying the world, and drawing maps. I didn’t know it was called geography until I got a bit older. It then expanded into all aspects of science. Geography in my opinion is a gateway to science as a whole, since it overlaps with many other sciences.
Who had the most influence in your life?
No one really influenced me in my love of maps and geography when I was a kid – for reasons that I don’t really know, it was interesting to me at a very young age and I studied it totally independently of anyone else’s influence or ideas. However, for an influence on my love of science, I credit my dad, who as an engineer has never been afraid to explain things in technical and mathematical terms. I grew up accustomed to thinking scientifically and analyzing everything very thoroughly, as well as loving nature and being outdoors, because of him.
