University of San Diego's National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The REUs went to the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to learn a little about climate change, oceanography, and seahorses. After that, we all headed to the Gliderport at Torrey Pines to enjoy the view (and delicious sandwiches - seriously, if you are in San Diego, you NEED to go there). It was a great time, and as you might expect, if you put a bunch of scientists together, the conversation always turns to science, grad school, careers, etc. Nerdy fun!
