This past weekend my parents visited Boston for the Annual Awards Night at Wentworth Institute of Technology! This event is done annually to honor students and organizations for their hard work and dedication to their school work and the Wentworth community. I was honored to be the recipient of the President’s award for Civil Engineering and to be inducted into the Tau Alpha Pi honors society. However, the most exciting thing was that the Society of Women Engineers won the Student Organization of the Year award this year!
It was really exciting to be honored for everything SWE does and I really enjoyed being able to see some of my best friends be honored for their outstanding work!
Since my parents were here this weekend, I took a couple of days off to enjoy the city! On Saturday we went to the Museum of Science (you can get $5 tickets at the info hub at WIT). My dad’s favorite thing there was the lightning show! They use a Van de Graaff generator to produce a show with lightning and sounds. This was a great representation of things we learn in physics (more information can be found here on what really happens: http://www.mos.org/live-presentations/lightning) Below is a portion of the final show! It is kind of blurry unfortunately!
In all I had a great easter weekend and am looking forward to finalizing all of my work to finish off my last spring semester!
