And when you work in the lab, summertime means summer undergraduate students! Theyre like any lab member– sometimes theyre good, sometimes theyre bad, sometimes they are somewhere in between– but no matter what, its a great opportunity for them to try out Research World and for us (grad students) to get mentoring experience.
Our summer student this year is a ton of fun! Not only has she been incredibly helpful to me in the lab, her personality meshes perfectly with our labs dynamics.
Example: Tomorrow summer undergrad has to give a presentation on her project to the other undergrads. I was going over with her why she was doing X, Y, and Z, the over all Big Picture of her project, and so on. She seemed to get it, but then she let out an exasperated sigh, “*sigh* I just dont see how the Holy Spirit fits into any of this.”
