In the Home Stretch

We are about to enter the last week of our summer research experience, and students have their noses to the grindstone, trying to get as much done as possible before we disperse. One valuable lesson that I think all students come away with is that research and scholarship invariably involve unexpected complications, delays, things that don’t go as planned. This is the nature of discovery. And discovery would be downright boring if everything turned out to be predictable, accessible, and uncomplicated. Another important lesson is that for every question you ask there are many more yet to be asked and answered. A lifetime of asking questions and searching for answers often yields only a small piece of the puzzle. I think it’s pretty cool to think we will never run out of questions! Off to our weekly large group lunch discussion…
