Scavenger hunts continue. Here one group consults Greg. Other groups can be seen in the background and right foreground, working together on activity questions. The activities are available at the Undergraduate ALFALFA Team Observing and Data Analysis page and our Practice question page. Feel free to use these if you'd like! [Photo credit: Parker Troischt]
