On Thursday I had another eight year old into the lab for an SRF study session. The whole family came along which was pretty different for me. I'm used to having just the child and one parent, maybe a couple other siblings. The dad seemed a little less excited to be there than the mom did, but it all worked out okay, I think he actually ended up being pretty interested in what we were studying. No technology glitches this time either, so that was great! I only have one more session left next week and then I'll be completely done running sessions, since I'm graduating.
I have really enjoyed having the opportunity to actually run research sessions. That is really what I was hoping to do when I started directed research, so it has been really exciting for me. I'm so glad I got to be a part of a specific study, it has been a great experience. I've loved meeting all of the families who come to lab and getting to teach them a little bit about the research we are doing, I've learned a lot! I'm hoping that I'll be able to continue doing some research in graduate school!
