Today we started with a class lead by Abby about some of the fundamentals of IRB process and writing a problem question paragraph. We spent some time as a group deconstructing the nuances of our experiment in order to build the foundation for our problem question. After this class, we spend some time with Eliot and talked about his path to where he is today. This an inspiring talk with the takeaway message being that there is not one right way to where you want to go. The fact is you probably won’t even end up where you think you will. Keep an open mind and doing the things that you love. After this talk, our research group went to our faculty mentor’s house for a team meeting. We got to meet the rest of the team that we will be working with and plan some of the upcoming goals. After our meeting, we came back to campus and took some pictures with Paul for the website. Now we are going to have a cookout at Ada Haden park and doing some Geocaching.
