Went to the orientation workshop, which had a breakfast (provided by Jason’s Deli) at 8:30 AM. The conference proper began at 9:00 AM, and ended around 2:00 PM. There was a lunch (also Jason’s Deli), and afterwards we filled out a survey about what we think about engineering and such.

 I was assigned to the Air Dispersion Modeling project, along with Tragan, who lives around here. We got a nice-sized packet of reading materials; I’ll probably look over that tonight.

 I realized during the conference how much emphasis they are putting on feedback from participants. We are getting knowledge and experience (and $3000), but the National Science Foundation is really interested in studying us both during these six weeks and beyond.
