We Did in Kansas
During my time in Kansas we had an
opportunity to do lots of fun things, not only with our REU but with others as
We had the
picnic at Dean Shanklin’s house for all of the summer programs.
During this there
were people playing soccer,
As well as tons
of other games. This was also our first opportunity for a group photo!
We had a
departmental picnic as well, were we got to visit Tuttle Creek and see the dam
summer we also took a trip to the Salt Mine’s and Cosmosphere in Kansas. Both
of those were really great opportunities. I was really surprised at how much
fun the Salt Mine’s were and how much fun I had.
One of the last
things we did was a BBQ at the Konza Prairie after an afternoon following the
Bison loop and getting to see actual Bison!
I have to say
this has been an amazing experience. Some of the best times I had during the
program were not a part of the scheduled activities. Running into fellow
researchers in the common room of the dorm or simply going to meals with people
were some of my favorite things from the program. This was seriously an amazing
group of people to spend my summer with.
