I had great day! Didn't you? A lot of effort goes into the planning and production of
EYH @ SJSU every year. Despite that, things come up and sometimes, a workshop gets canceled. And I
am sorry if you did not get your first choices. But I hope that you had a lot of fun and that you
learned something new.
I love living in the Bay Area, don't you? There are so many things going on. I would like
to tell you about some opportunities in the Bay Area for participation in other science related
activities. You will find a few links to explore below.
If you would like to share some photos, email them to me. I will use
them on our web site and for administrative matters.
Thank you for coming.
