This Tuesday was my first week with the MMMILC group;I didn’t get certified just yet, so a lot of my job today was monitoring the students and analyzing what they were doing, to learn along the way until I get certified. But monitoring the high school students and what they were doing reminded me of all the activities in high school. Not only was the experience nostalgic, I’m happy that the students are learning a lot of skill sets that would very much be used in college. As a college student, I’m watching them do many similar things that I would do in a lab classroom with measuring the plants and learning with lab kits. I’m excited for the upcoming weeks and to join in on the actual monitoring of the milkweeds next week!
