I love marine life. I know everything about it(Dolphin Research Center). The problem is Im not good at bio or chem but Im good at computers. Its my junior year of high school and Im in AP Computer. What careers will allow me to spend time with animals or teach about them as well as be on a computer? What degree will I need, I dont want to spend the rest of my life in school. I am in a Prep school and only want 4-6 college years. Haylee, NE PA resident who doesnt want to go far from home

Haylee, you are in a fortunate position. Computers and electronics are everywhere. Being good a computers (and hopefully enjoying them) means you can create a fun and rewarding career wherever you want. A bachelors degree in electrical engineering or computer science will give you versatility to be useful in countless industries. Technical work with animals can include monitoring (migration patterns, communication, etc.), automation (feeding, habitat, museums, etc.), statistical analysis (population or health as a function of climate, for example), and many other things that are only limited by your imagination.
