Yesterday we made the trip over to Minnesota University to meet there Computer science REU teams and talk about our different project. It was really interesting to see what they had been working on and get an idea of what other REU programs look like. Each of the groups gave a quick presentation about what we were working on and we then had some time for a few demos. After this meeting, we got to head over to the mall of America where we did some shopping and rode some rides. The car rides were really long, but I was able to get a lot of reading done which was nice. We also got Cane’s Chicken. It was my first time and it was very exciting. There had been a lot of hype surrounding this restaurant and I think that it lived up to it.
As far as our stress project, I think that we finally have data! We have to touch base with the other intern who is working in the bio lab and see what the data looks like, but I think that we should be able to start writing the results and discussion sections of our paper. I am also just really excited to see how well we did. We have spent a lot of time building the experiment and running participants that it will be fun to see the fruits of our labor. We also need to start putting the finishing touches on our poster. I think we need a few more pictures and a results section.
