“In a classroom lab setting, there are protocols for you to follow. When conducting your own research, either in the lab or in the field, you are not going to have these protocols because everything is novel and different, and always changing. You must have that capacity to adapt, and I feel like I have at least started to acquire that ability by engaging in these experiences.”-Aldo Arellano '17 reflects that he is a better scientist today because of his experiences in the field.
