In addition to your research, you will be going to several field trips during the summer. Weather in Kansas can be highly variable, especially in spring and early summer. However, you are most likely to encounter a lot of sun and heat, so plan your wardrobe accordingly. We suggest rain gear, sun hat, and sunscreen. Insect repellent might be helpful for outdoor activities. You can find most of the supplies or gear you might need here if you discover that you have forgotten something important.
The poster session will be in last week of the internship. It will be a two-hour session, where people from our department and from the college will come and talk to you about your summer project and things that you learned during your internship. Your coordinator will ask you to write a weekly blog entry to keep track of your progress, take pictures, which can be eventually included in your poster. There will also be a seminar on how to make poster and scientific presentations from K-State Graduate School. Your mentors and project directors will be available to guide you for poster making.
