There are no such thing as Research Posters...
May 22, 2012
Today I'm working on a research poster for the open school event this Saturday. I've never done one of these before in undergrad, and I wondered why I was the only one in the lab who hadn't. Then for reference, I google image-searched the string "research poster" and realized that it is primarily, if not entirely, an activity inherent to the academic realms of science. We never had to make these concise, pictographic summaries of our research back in undergrad because, well, that method is fairly ineffective when it comes to literature studies.
Because Facebook is a kind of public forum, I apologize for being categorical in the things that have been vexing me lately, especially those things that when inventoried, emphasize my alien-ness as a book zealot in a school composed of labs and numbers.
