This week, I got to go with a graduate student in my lab to collect samples for research, and it was awesome. For the past two summers I've pretty much been strictly a dish-washer and the occasional tag maker, but I've never gotten to do anything hands-on in the field. It was awesome! We spent the whole day at the lake and it was pretty much exactly what it sounds like: I bent over the side of a boat and collected water samples and then used some fancy science gear to dig up sediment from the bottom of the lake containing invertebrates that we also took samples of. It was much better than a day inside doing dishes.
