Motivation now that the sun has come out…

Hi all,

Great to see how you’ve all been getting on! I hope you’re managing to stay motivated and focussed on your projects now that the weather seems to be picking up a bit!

Just a few reminders…

Next briefing meeting – Thursday 16th August, 12.30pm PS1.28. Focus of the session is on poster design and the logistics of getting your poster printed.

Can those of you who would like to present your posters at the Reinvention Centre Conference on Friday 21st September please let me know asap!



Week Two

It’s now almost the end of week two and I’ve yet to post anything here, so here goes…

Sam and I have just finished revision 1 of a design document for the program we have to write. Hopefully there won’t be too many changes to make before we can get on with implementing it, but there will inevitably be some!

On a lighter note, we created a new particle; the Duckton, which mediates a vector field known as the Pond. A duckton (see the photo below) is a bound state of three quacks. Each quack has a colour (red, green, blue) and the Duckton is a yellow combination of quacks.

(No, we were not bored, just insane.)

There are some photos of the “office” below, too. It spends most of the year masquerading as a meeting room, so you can imagine the size!
