Science & Engineering Family Day

A couple weeks ago we launched a contest to see if we can fund
science day activities. 6 activities have been chosen, original brief
was for 2 but we found 6 that were related to impact. Congratulations
to the following:
1. Lenka Pitonakova & Seth Bullock: Project Name: ŒThe Hive Mind¹:

A variety of scenarios will be set up on the stand to affect

situation. This is related to the ChariOT project.
5. Raied Al-Lashi & Steve Gunn: ŒHow can bubbles help you predict
the weather?¹ This tells us more about how bubbles can help us
understand climate, which is through determining their size distribution.
