Nanodays Event 2013!

Usually when the weather is nice people do not like to visit museums, but our Nanodays event had over 80 people visiting the Explore More Discovery Museum in Harrisonburg, VA.  This event gave the possibility to young K-12 kids to learn cool stuff about Nanotechnology!  I hope now they know why water cannot penetrate certain textiles, or why some metals like to have a "memory" of their own!

Spring Picnic 2013

On April 7 we once again descended on Purcell Park for the annual spring picnic. In addition to the usual soccer game there was a bit of slack-lining and shelter climbing. Oh yeah, there was good food provided by the cook, Costel Constantin. More pictures are found here.

The end of the semester is approaching fast (or slow, depending on your point of view). This is typically the last gathering of the majors before graduation. At least they can now study on a full belly.
