The SIFTers watched a video about James' specialty, ants, in preparation for Friday and then had some time to move into their cabins and unwind with a little Ultimate Frisbee.
After Frisbee local scientists arrived for dinner and the students rotated between them in groups to hear about the kind of research they each did. Then we had a wonderful dinner and had more Frisbee time. The SIFTers went on a night hike sans-flashlights and learned some cool tricks with night vision and ice breakers. After getting back to Dana Brown we had a bonfire after a little trouble with lighting it (Thank you Team Monica!) and had s'mores. Before bed, James set up a black light sheeting, which attracted this lovely little creature, a female dobsonfly.
