Summer School in Winter 2005
Jan 31, 2005
This was the third time I attended Summer School in Winter at University of Florida. Just as the two previous occasions, it was a terrific opportunity for networking with other students in the particle science and technology area, and for attending lectures by top-level researchers.
First, these are some pictures taken from the plane in our way. These are departing from Minneapolis-St. Paul in our way to Florida. Seeing all that snow makes you really glad you're going to a sunny place. Or are you?
Well, it turned out that we had cloudy skies most of the week. In fact, the day we arrived to Florida, it was colder there than here back in Oregon. Unbelievable!
The first activity, on Saturday was the poster presentation.
One of the UF students celebrated his birthday during the week, so we all had the chance to sing "Happy Birthday" and enjoy some cake...
These are some pictures taken around campus.
Of course, there's always time for having some fun...
A little bedtime story...
Once upon a time in the land of gators... an alligator attacked us by surprise... it ate our posters... attacked me... I had to wrestle with it... so Pranav could get our posters back.
The last day, we received our participation diplomas. The group picture below is a composite of the other three pictures. I also took a short video (4.8 Mb AVI) of the group.
And, finally, some more aerial pictures taken in our way back to Oregon.
Thanks to Pranav for sharing some of his pictures.
