  1. This was a very well rounded and informative project! Soil chemistry, like you already mentioned, is very crucial to plant growth, development, and yield production on many scales around the world.

    Your reflection section (i.e., Errors in Experiment slide) was extremely insightful and demonstrated your understanding of the possible variables, both in and out of your control. This type of thinking (e.g., critical thinking, problem solving, and resourcefulness) in addition to introspection (which isn’t often done and/or taught) is important to adopt as foundational characteristics if you wish to pursue a rigorous career. However, with all that being said, don’t forget to give yourself credit where credit is due. You did a great job!
