Cat-herding

I had three undergraduates to supervise this afternoon. One is M, who has been a trusty sidekick on more than one project this summer and who is making good headway on a couple of her own projects. The second, F, has been critical in keeping everything going on the home front while we were off at Sedgwick, and is just now starting in on his first project that he can assume ownership over (vs. helping other people on their projects). The last, O, just began his first real day in the lab, and is learning how to grab and pick up crickets. I forget that this is something that people need to learn at first.

It's a bit of a handful, managing three people at three different stages. Students need a large up-front time investment when they first get underway, which is fun but requires extra time and patience.

There's also C, who has been working long-distance this summer on a video analysis project, and A, who is wrapping up an intense year-long project on cricket flight. Five undergraduates is a large team, for me, but I feel good about what we have been able to accomplish here.
