            Over the course of the semester in Writing in Biology, we worked on four major projects: Methods, Proposal, Project, and Reflection. Each project connected to topics discussed in class, and prepared us for a career in the biological fields. The proposal project was very exciting and a little daunting in the beginning. When the project was explained, having the opportunity to design an experiment about anything surrounding planarians seemed like a big task. Doing the project in groups was extremely helpful, as well as the one on one meeting with Dr. Brewer to help work through the details of the proposal. Drafting the proposal went well and we had a lot of fun. Planarians were an interesting invertebrate to use, because I had never heard of them and they were really cute in their own interesting way. Learning about a new species and designing our own experiments was great, because it gave me an idea of what being in a science field could be like.
