The poster sessions are approaching as we near the tenth and final week. I put the finishing touches on my poster on Monday and sent it off to print at the Pixel Lab on campus. Then it was time to start my first research paper. It was tough getting started and finding the motivation to write, but once I read a few papers and started writing it became easier. I continued to work on the paper for the entire week and was able to finish a rough draft by the time Friday came around. On Wednesday all five of us REU students gave a presentation of our poster to Dr. Duncan to get some feedback on our poster along with our description of the data that our poster portrays. We now set out to the final week where we have a poster session on Monday for the engineering department and a poster session on Tuesday for the entire Summer Research Program.
