HENRY SHACKLETON: I don't know. I think Junior Lab was a really great experience. I like that it gave people room to figure things out and come up with their own ideas, come up with their own ways of proceeding with analysis. For example, in my first experiment which was relativistic dynamics, you take electrons, you accelerate them in magnetic fields and measure the kinetic energy which ultimately proves relativity, there was sort of this error that I ran into which was a very strange sort of error that wasn't really well documented.
So I did a lot of independent reading. I talked with my lab professor for like two hours after a lab. And by the end, it really felt like I had independently came to like a very deep conclusion on this matter. It was a good experience of sort of independent learning and figuring things out for yourself.
