Heather Allamon learned the hard way that scientific research is all about making mistakes. The junior biology major from Crestline is studying the effects of light intensity and water clarity on the foraging rates of larval fish through the Science, Engineering and Technology Gateway Ohio (SETGO) program.
“When I first started the lights were too hot,” Allamon said. “They warmed up the water and killed all the fish. When you’re doing your own research project sometimes you have to think on your feet and redesign what you’re doing.”
