Well in my house when I was growing up, we were always watching science
fiction movies, like Fantastic Voyage, and 2001; and shows like Nova, Cosmos,and
National Geographic.  Books were always available,  and magazines.  We had a
whole series of Time Life books,  encyclopedias.  I serously thought I 
wanted to be an Astrophysicist for many years.  My Dad was an Electrical
Engineer,  so there were always computers in the house.  

I realized quite young that I wanted to be a scientist, I believe when I
was in 5'th grade.  I was influenced by a male teacher, who made science
and history very interesting.  When did you all decide to become scientists,
or Biologists or whatever.
