Today was a really long day because we did a lot of different things and covered a lot of ground. We started the day with a Craft of Research lecture where we learned how to write a craft a problem statements and we learned about the purpose of the IRB. For lunch, we had our first Luncheon Lecture with Eliot Winer, the Associate Director at the Virtual Reality Applications Center. He was such an amazing speaker, clearly very passionate about what he does. I am really looking forward to possibly meeting with him to hear more about his academic journey.
After lunch and our first luncheon lecture, my project team and I meet up with our grad mentor and walked over to our faculty mentors lab, saw the lab space, and took a look at the different tools we could work with. Following our small research lab tour, we took pictures around campus with Paul and we ended up walking what felt like miles. But we did stop at Starbucks in Campustown halfway through so that made the experience a little better because it was very hot outside today.
We ended the day with a barbecue in Ada Haven park. Some of my peers did geocaching but Kelsey and I just ended up sitting on a swinging chair by the lakeshore and just talked about our freshman years. Tomorrow we are back in the lab starting bright and early with our C++ course.
