OSU Forensics Day 2

The compass activity took some time to get the hang of, but it’s something I’m really glad we learned because it will not only be a useful technique in our forensics work, but it’s also a fairly basic life skill that’s good to have. I also really enjoyed making the concept map. The map was a great visual representation of how all the different aspects of forensic anthropology interplay with one another. For someone who likes to find the connection between things and see more of the big picture, it was a great exercise.”

Until today, I had never been taught how to properly use a compass. It was actually pretty confusing at first but after Sarah L. and I practiced using the coordinates a few times we finally got the hang of it. On the second one we actually ended up in the exact same spot that we started. Even though it is just one seemingly simple skill I am happy that I now have it in my toolkit. Overall it was a great day and I am excited to come back tomorrow and to see what the rest of the month brings.”
