 Steve Grey is both an engineer and a Navajo, and sometimes he finds he has to put aside part of one to be all of the other. "The hardest part for me was trying to blend the scientific with the Navajo view of science," said Grey, who serves as head of the Laboratory's field office at the Navajo Community College in Arizona. For the Navajo, some phenomena, such as the sun rising every day in the east, are simply accepted as they are, said Grey. "In contrast, science always wants to explore what is beyond what is known, to break down elements and to understand concepts." Grey spends his workweek in modern office, and many weekends in a hogan, a traditional navajo home of wood and mud, without electricity or running water.
