Students in the General Ecology course at Bethune-Cookman Univeristy participated in a the first day of a three week field laboratory gathering data on ghost crabs and beach macroplatics.
The students have participated in two interactive labs from HHMI Biointeractive earlier in the semester, and several laboratory exercises, but today they learned the challenges of conducting field research themselves:
- Sand everywhere
- wind blowing lab papers around
- organizing field gear
- Gear breaking
- sand, sand and more sand….then rain. What field work isn’t complete without a rainstorm 😂🤷♀️!
