Ottawa Trip: A success!

On the morning of November 6th, ACS members set out on a mission to explore the Ottawa Museum of Science and Technology. ACS members weaved their way through a maze of scientific and technological masterpieces and keystones; among these being nuclear reactors, particle accelerators, HUGE steam engine trains, and the first electronic wheelchair. ACS members even assisted scientists collect sediment samples for GC-MS analysis, on a Jupiter-bound comet in an educational simulator! The day was complimented with a walking tour through the fine city of Ottawa, and capped with a “linner” (lunch dinner) at Kinki’s Sushi Bar. All in all, the day was filled with science, beautiful neo-gothic architecture, delicious avocado sushi rolls, and countless sing-a-longs (gotta love those long car rides!).

Last week’s meeting was brief, but we talked about a couple approaching events:

A few members will be heading to Ottowa on Saturday, Nov. 6th for a day at the Science and Technology Museum.  Anyone interested (with a passport) is still welcome to join!

Jillian and Andrew talked about ACS’s first video conference with Jillian’s father (Dr. Reich), which will happen November 9th.  Again, a great opportunity for pre-med students!

We wrapped the meeting up with an informal discussion panel regarding course selection for the spring semester.  The upper classmen offered some good insight on different science courses.

see you all Tuesday!
