YES. We melted down styrofoam boxes all day in the lab.

Well, that sucks. Is the financial situation going to prevent you from coming back?
It does suck but finances will always work out, and I already have a job offer as a lab tech if I go to UW, so it’s definitely still on the top of my list! Plus I definitely expect some scholarship money.






It’s unfortunate how many people didn’t take this message away from the debate.

Bill Nye was just SO ENTHUSIASTIC about the topic. You could tell.

For God’s sake, the man was trying to teach people about photosynthesis when asked what his favourite colour was. That’s a man that ADORES science and absolutely loves teaching people.

Suddenly, I was 12 and watching a Bill Nye The Science Guy episode at my grandma’s school while she was decorating the gym.

Bill Nye is like the Mister Roger’s of science

he legitimately cares about what he is talking about and enthusiastically encourages people to take something positive away from it

Bill Nye is the Mister Rogers of science

Bob Ross is the Mister Rogers of art

and Mister Rogers is… well, Mister Rogers

what if they could join forces

I don’t know if this has changed, but I remember it having a really high suicide rate and having a 70% male student body. What do you have to do to get residency in Wyo?
The following students are Wyoming residents:
    1. Individuals who are financial dependents or under the age of 24 with a parent, guardian or spouse who lives in the State of Wyoming.
    2. Individuals who are recipients of Wyoming high school credentials.
    3. Active Wyoming National Guard members and U.S. Armed Forces members stationed in Wyoming, and their dependents.
    4. Individuals with a permanent home in Wyoming and who have resided in the State for at least one full year. To determine if a permanent Wyoming home has been established, the following factors are considered:
      • Evidence that any former home has been abandoned
      • Full-time employment performed or contracted for in Wyoming for one continuous year
      • Ownership of home or property in Wyoming
      • One year of continual presence in Wyoming
      • Former Wyoming residency and maintaining state ties
      • Reliance on Wyoming resources for significant financial support
      • Wyoming vehicle registration
      • Wyoming address on most recent federal income tax form
      • A valid Wyoming driver’s license
      • Wyoming voter registration
      • Residing in Wyoming primarily as a student will not support a claim for resident status.

WHAT. South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is cheaper than UW for out of state students. WHAT. This has confused all of my thoughts.

Field work from SRAP 2014!

I’m so thankful for my fantastic partner, who helped me through the entire experience, never failing to put up with my overly optimistic attitude and my bossiness.


"Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you."

Know Your T. rex!

There are dozens of Tyrannosaurus skeletons on display around the world, but most are casts of a handful of specimens.

AMNH 5027

The first T. rex ever exhibited, and for most of the 20th century the only nearly complete specimen known. Look for a boxier skull, oversized legs borrowed from the T. rex holotype, feet based on Allosaurus, and filled-in fenestrae on older casts.

As Seen At: American Museum of Natural History, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Academy of Natural Sciences, National Museum of Natural History (skull), Peabody Museum of Natural History (skull)

The Nation’s T. rex - MOR 555

Discovered by rancher Kathy Wankel on Army Corps of Engineers land. Currently on loan to the Smithsonian. Look for longer, lankier legs, and an inaccurately reconstructed sloped snout on cast skulls.

As Seen At: Royal Ontario Museum, Museum of the Rockies, National Museum of Scotland, Perot Museum of Nature and Science, National Museum of Natural History (in 2019)

Stan – BHI 3033

By far the most duplicated and most exhibited dinosaur in the world. Look for excessively long teeth and a perforated jaw.

As Seen At: Black Hills Institute, Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, National Museum of Natural History, Dinosaur Discovery Museum, Houston Museum of Natural Science, Manchester Museum, Tokyo National Museum of Natural Science, traveling exhibits

Sue – FMNH PR2081

Discovered by Susan Hendrickson and the subject of an ugly 3-year legal battle before being purchased by the Field Museum. The oldest and most complete T. rex known. Look for a longer snout and stubby cocker spaniel legs.

As Seen At: Field Museum of Natural History, Disney World Animal Kingdom, traveling exhibits

Jane – BMRP 2002.4.1

A juvenile Tyrannosaurus discovered in 2001. Look for a scrawny build, gracile legs and a narrow skull.

As Seen At: Burpee Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
