Getting to know…the Science & Tech Editor

Marc Randy
Science & Tech Editor

Hello there. I’m Marc, the science and tech editor. I haven’t been at Abbott as long as the other members since I transferred to this college in the fall of 2019. I’m currently in the science program in my quest to figure out what I’m going to do with my life and my future, a sentiment I’m sure every student can relate to.

I’m happy to say I do fit the bill somewhat to the position of the science & tech editor. I like science and technology for all the ways it’s improved and shaped human society, culture and physical disposition. I’m also a big player of video games, but I don’t like them enough to want to be the editor for the games section. I even have rectangular glasses. So, in other words, I’m a nerd, really. But I like to think of myself as an intellectual.

Speaking of figuring out what I’m going to do with my life, I do have some idea. I don’t know exactly how or when, but I want to go to space. Space, as captain Jean-Luc Picard said in Star Trek: The Next Generation, is the final frontier. And as someone who likes discovering new things, that final frontier is alluring to me. Not only because it involves leaving the planet where the entire human race evolved on, but also because of the technology needed to explore space properly. Also, I think having a Moon base or a Martian colony would be the coolest thing ever.

So, as I try to figure my way to the stars, I’m the science and tech editor of Bandersnatch. It’s a fun job with some really cool people. Swing by the club room once it reopens anytime you want to learn more about us. We have meetings every Tuesday after we publish.
