    Career help, please?

    I am also considering careers and I am only a sophomore in highschool. I know this sounds ridiculous but my parents don't know a whole lot about careers in science. Can anyone advise me regarding government careers (NASA and the like)? What sort of thing are they looking for and is there a...
