Today was the first day in lab for our group! We are getting excited about getting to work in the lab and start really getting into our project. The day started off with Chad going over how to use the microscopes and all of the different things we will be looking at through them. Once that happened we still didn’t know what we were seeing and had Chad running back and forth to help us. Taking notes and sketching pictures helped a lot. We definitely have more confidence recognizing different Phytoliths, Diatoms, and minerals under a microscope. I look forward to tomorrow and what I can learn next!
