Wednesday and Thursday

Wednesday morning students worked in groups.

Wednesday afternoon students were given the opportunity to talk with graduate students about graduate school. The students asked many good questions and hopefully learned a lot about graduate school and what they need to consider when thinking about graduate school. We really appreciate all of the help that these graduate students were able to offer for our students!

Thursday students worked on projects and gave three wonderful presentations about their research. Keep up the good work!

Monday and Tuesday

Monday and Tuesday morning students worked in their groups.

Tuesday after lunch we had Daniell Toth talk to us about his work at the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Students learned what it means to give up academic life for a job in the government, you have to love the zero zero load... Students also learned a bit about what goes on in the Bureau, from complex data sets to binary trees.

Now students are back in their groups working on their individual projects.
