Fun Things To Do With a Math Or Science Degree?

bluenirve Re:Be a teacher (564 comments)

This. I'm currently a math major, but I can honestly say that I didn't like high school math (though I was pretty good). The stuff you do in college and highschool are totally different. It started to open up for me in Abstract (if you couldn't tell, I err on the side of non-applied math). So definitely, tell her to get a taste of more kinds of math, because you may really like it.
