My very last class of the semester was my lab science. I choose Physical Geography as my lab science because it was something different from what I have taken. I've enjoyed this course a lot, especially the hands-on lab assignments. And Friday's lab was definitely hands-on.
We went out to a branch of the Winooski River, about 15 minutes from campus, to learn about water movement. Part of the assignment was to determine the speed of the current. I can't tell you the exact speed because I was in the water conducting the tests! Everyone on shore was measuring the time. After class, I grabbed the data from my friend but I haven't had a chance to calculate and study the data myself. I should have the answers for that day shortly.

I love the hands-on experiences in the lab because I definitely gained a lot more understanding for this concept.
