Today at Green Bank, we did more pulsar work (of course!). We kept working on our group projects but two of our telescope requests have not been looked at yet so we have to wait for the results first. Later on, we did the "GBT Design Challenge" where we had to build a sturdy base that would hold a small tray of sand. However there was a twist. The supplies (which consisted of marshmallows, spaghetti, gumdrops, and toothpicks) could only be obtained by "buying" them from the "store". This was important because while we were given plenty of money, we still had to stay within our budget. Unfortunately, our base could not balance the tray well and it fell off - disqualifying us. If there is anything good to say about our construction, its that it was pretty sturdy and wasn't going to break anytime soon. After more work on our projects, (which still weren't ready) we went back out to the recreation area to relax. Katie and I, along with some other students and mentors, went back to the creek. More people caught crawdads, minnows, and salamanders and I actually got pictures this time. Then a few of us decided to hike back to the camp instead of just driving back. It was a very long hike but definitely worth the scenery. Finally, even though the telescope might not be doing what we want it to, it was still a good day of exploring West Virginia even more.
