For many, the pancakes and bacon were a great way to begin a big day in the field. After a student-led Bible lesson time and a wonderful program on communicating data through infographs, based on their interests, the students created scientific questions to investigate. Four groups formed around the following questions: 1) How does species richness vary across elevation? 2) How does snowpack among different communities impact conditions favorable for subnivian life? 3) Which biotic community attracts the most animal biodiversity? 4) How do biotic factors impact snow crystal formation across the snowpack? The evening was filled with leadership and teambuilding activities, capping off a fantastic day. The instructors who led the team building activities were floored by this group’s kindness, respect, and functionality. It was a full day of great data collection and awesome student energy.
