Amelia C HS Internship Day 4

Today felt like my real first day of work. We finally dived into georeferencing, which while it wasn’t as exciting as receiving tours from seasoned botanists, it was still cool to track where all the specimens we have were collected. I had to find locations from things as vague as "Chicago, IL" to "Collected from the back of a snapping turtle in the lagoon in Jackson Park." I also spent awhile pondering why so many algae specimens seemed to be collected in the Hyde Park area, when I realized it must have been University of Chicago students and professors collecting them.
We later began our first foray into TaleBlazer, playing several games and familiarizing ourselves with the program that we will soon have to spend extensive time with. Overall a good day.
