In this event, designed by the Heffernan lab, lab teams split in two with each sub-team drawing an ecological concept at random from a collection of slips in Anna's hand. Each subteam than had 10 minutes to prepare a conceptual model of their concept using toothpicks, gummy bears, gummy frogs, gummy chicken feet, gummy eggs and swedish fish. At the end of the sculpting period each team had to use their model in a charade in which they tried to get the other members of their lab to guess the concept.
Pleased to report that every team successfully guessed the appropriate concept.

They then had to collect a g sample of leaf litter from the same plot and weigh it to within a gram of the goal [which was super annoying because the scale they brought only went to g].
