SciGirls Quest Day 2, MagLab Tour, Statistics, and 3D Printing

SciGirls Quest MagLab TourSciGirls Quest MagLab Tour

We had a full day at the MagLab today! We started off with an informative tour of the facilities with our mentors, Kari Roberts and Jennifer Neu, both from the MagLab. We were thrilled by the giant magnets and amazing facilities here at the lab. Afterwards we analyzed the color distributions in M&M bags with Kari, and we were on the edge of our seats! It turns out colors are not equally represented in milk vs. dark chocolate M&Ms!  We squeezed in a little research time for our Mars colonization project before lunch and started to envision what our Martian habitats might look like. Castle Kim from FSU’s Innovation Hub came to visit after lunch to introduce us to the magic of 3D printing and computer aided design, and left us with some cute “flexi-rexi” 3D-printed dinosaurs. We wrapped up circling back to our projects to finish out the day.
