Anil C HS Internship Day 2

Today was our first day in the botany section of the museum, and I thought that the massive amounts of species the museum had collected over time was very impressive, and certainly much more extensive than I had imagined it would be. My favorite part, however, was cataloguing the preserved specimens before they were shipped off to New Zealand. Not only did I feel like I was actually helping real scientists get actual work done, it was also really cool seeing all the different types of plants that had been collected as well as the extremely antiquated newspaper advertisements. The board game, on the other hand, was a lot more frustrating, but it was very rewarding every now and again.
