The Tweety Bird Method
Not all lab equipment is as high-tech as you might think. Sometimes the most random-seeming household object winds up being one of your most useful tools.
Repetition, Repetition
Repetition is an essential component of scientific experimentation--if you want reliable and useful results! Read about Kirsten's joys and woes on this important, but trying matter.

A Blurry Picture Coming Into Focus
This past week and a half has been full on! I have been diving head first into the depths of my project, which is both exciting and exhausting. It seems as though the deeper you get, the more questions you have.

Technology, Forest Surveys, and Climate Change
This blog post will be primarily dedicated to giving you an overview of my project including how it can potentially help us understand the ramifications of climate change over time.
