Hi everyone! I am learning new things so that I can help when the core starts to arrive from the big drill on the ship.
Today I had some practice learning to safely mix the chemicals they use to do experiments on the cores. You have to wear goggles and gloves and a lab coat – but I didn’t need a lab coat because I have feathers. The lady helping me in the picture is Yulia. She works in the geochemistry lab. That is a lab where they learn what kind of things the rocks are made of. Yulia is very nice and she helped me learn how to make something called a solution. Thank you for being so helpful Yulia!
