Are you like, Bill Nye the Science Guy or something? That was a phenomenal showing of your cell anatomy knowledge, and we're simply floored by your aptitude. Science is freaking cool, isn't it!? Way to go!

Alrighty, you're not the most scientific person to ever grace the planet.

Science isn't everyone's strong point. But that doesn't mean you're doomed to be a science screwup for the rest of your life! What if you tried some flashcards, and did some lab experiments? Being a science whiz isn't out of your reach, especially if you're reaching for the stars!
