Visit to the Arecibo Observatory

On Saturday we visited the Arecibo Observatory to meet students from the AO REU (http://outreach.naic.edu/ao/REUT). They gave us a super cool tour of the control room and even got to see one student observing as we were there. Thank you for reminding us that “we are made from star stuff”

Visit to El Verde Field Station

Last Saturday we visited El verde Field Station. Even though we somehow got on the wrong bus, we made it to the rainforest. There, we met the students from the Tropical Ecology REU http://reu.ites.upr.edu and heard about their amazing projects. Thank you to the students and REU staff for sharing your research with us and for guiding us through the rain forest.
