Pictures from the NSE Culminating Event (pt. 3)

Participants from all the NASA Summer Experience CAPSTONE 2011 sites gathered at Northwestern University on Friday, 5 August 2011.  The students stood by the displays of their projects to present them to the circulating faculty and students from other schools, then took a turn circulating to view other schools’ projects.

After dinner, as the public viewings were beginning, we asked the teams from each of the three University of Chicago site schools to pose more-or-less formally for group portraits in front of their project posters.   The results are in this collection (including some good re-takes and some goofing around!).  A best one or two for each school will be crossposted to the individual school blogs.

Pictures from the NSE Culminating Event (pt. 1)

Participants from all the CAPSTONE 2011 sites gathered at Northwestern University on Friday, 5 August 2011.  The students stood by the displays of their projects to present them to the circulating faculty and students from other schools, then took a turn circulating to view other schools’ projects.  An innovation this year was organized peer commentary on paper.  Dinner was followed by another session of project discussion, this time designated as public viewing, and indeed many families were present.

This first collection of pictures shows a bit of the NU campus and the ambience of the venue, along with some participants and visitors relaxing in informal colloquy.

Northwestern is supposed to send detailed directions for walking from the station to campus, but the map will help familiarize you to the route.
