Pre-Workshop Training- Day 2

Day 2 of the pre-workshop training started with a continental breakfast, similar to the one I had on the first day.  I took the Red line to Park Street, and the BU Central Stop is  We met in the Photonics building, in an amazing conference room on the 9th floor.

The first part of the day we received presentations from the REU, the Research experiences for Undergraduates program.  They had been working at the program for about 3 weeks, and seemed like they had learned a lot and many were using terms that we weren’t even sure of. 

We then had about an hour of Laser training, and learned all about different classes of lasers (there’s a lot!), and how to be safe around lasers in general.

Lunch was in the student union, and I had a delicious salad for really cheap.

In the afternoon, we had different laboratories provide us with what their RETs would be for the summer.  It was interesting to get to know what the other teachers were doing.

We then had a social with all of the laboratory representatives, and finally headed to the BU College of Arts and Sciences, to see where we would be working.  We decided to meet outside Professor Fritz’s office on Monday to begin work!
