Hey everyone, my name is Ryan Parsaee and I'm from Toronto, Canada! Although I have moved to the United States since then and have lived in Cary, North Carolina and now Exton, Pennsylvania. I currently attend Great Valley High School. I am involved in TRIP because I want to gain more experience in the lab before I commit to a science major in College, and I want to learn a bit more about biology! Something interesting about me is that I play guitar and piano, and that I am on my school's quizbowl team.
Today was our first day in the lab and I learned quite a bit. It was my first time using a micropipette which was very finicky to use because my hands are very shaky! We also learned some basics of how to make a solution. We then created some solutions for our future fly buddies (whose heads will be smashed in by yours truly). I also brought home some fly pets that I am definitely not going to accidentally kill!!!!!!
