As a follow up to Professor Hsiao-Wecksler's advice during our Maximizing Summer Productivity lunch to work on our curricula vitae, come join us for a brown bag (bring your own) lunch!

Upcoming Events and Announcements

Bubble Tea Hour
Thursday, July 7th | 5-7PM | LaTea Bubble Tea Lounge
As an alternative to Wednesday night happy hours, we'll have an early evening bubble tea get-together at my favorite bubble tea place (light debate is welcome, regarding the merits of adversaries Cocomero and Chatime). I'll make sure to bring some sort of sign so you can spot me if you've never met me before. Take a break from research (even if your group meeting is early Friday morning)!

Looking for an excuse to read this summer? Or maybe you're gone for an internship but want something lined up in the fall? If you're interested in forming a group with some fellow female engineers, fill out this form by next week, and we'll start organizing among interested parties.
