2017 Ventura lab ski-trip/brainstorming
This year the Ventura lab headed to Camelback Mountain to spend some time on the slopes and take a break from the lab.
Peter and Andrea were the only who actually dared skiing, while the rest of the group preferred more ‘relaxing’ activities, such as snow tubing, testing their aiming skills at a shooting range, or engaging in a friendly poker game.
In the evening, students and postdoc had the floor to present their new ideas. The brainstorming session ended with a secret ballot that to decide the ‘best idea’ of the retreat. Xiaoyi was the winner and took home a brand new iPad mini!
