I am now about halfway through my TRIP journey now and it feels great! At the beginning I was worried that it would be super challenging and it was a bit at first but I've learned so much. I did my introductory experiment on Geotaxis, it being my first every experiment with any kind of animal. But it turned out to be a very fun and informative experience on how flies react to drugs and stressors, giving me some basic ideas on what I wanted to do for my independent project. For my independent project my question is “How does caffeine affect flies in isolation”, I chose this because I think isolation is a very interesting question and the fact that Covid shut down the world for a while is what led me to think about this topic, the topic is relevant and fresh to the minds of everyone because of the Covid lock down and how much everyone likes coffee (Me included).
