More Celebrations!

Last Friday was Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED) hosted by the Caltech Society of Women Engineers (SWE). The name is pretty self-explanatory, but we basically introduce high school girls to what engineering and science is like through lab tours, demonstrations, design contest, and more. As historian, I took photos during the design contest, in which the girls were given some materials to construct a structure that could hold to most weight (books). I think the girls had fun and hopefully some of them will put some serious thought into becoming scientists or engineers someday.

So this past weekend, we played against Biola on Saturday and Arizona Christian University on Sunday. We won 7-2 for both matches. The women’s tennis team is off to a good start undefeated (3-0) so far. Our next match will be our first SCIAC match of the season against Cal Lu this Friday.

Wish us luck? It’ll be a tight match.

There were a ton of birthdays this past weekend. Avery has a email list dedicated towards special events, which you can request to take the “special” person off and plan surprises for them. Thus, there was lots of cake, sweets, and card signings this past weekend.

It was Jessica’s 21st birthday this past weekend, so a small group of us surprised her by kidnapping her from her problem sets and taking her out for dinner. We went to Golden Deli, which is a typical Vietnamese restaurant and has delicious pho. We visited D’ ange Bakery afterwards to get her some egg tarts. It’s been a busy weekend, so it was nice to take a break from Caltech and catch up with these girls.
