Sitting on the beach with some crazy norweigans!
Katie here with an update from california and the NORUS program. It's officially day 2 and we have already learned so much.
Saturday consisted of a hike through a local state park including tide pooling, rock climbing, and a very adament lecture from mark about poison oak. After our hike we enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant followed by a glider overview presentation by Rutgers' own John Kerfoot.
This morning began with a walk out to the Cal Poly Pier, a wonderful station that they are letting us borrow for this week. We began with a physical glider overview including what parts go where, and what each part does. After a few minor problems with the glider, we put the glider in the tank and made sure our ballasting was accurate. We then spent some time working on the program's website: Norus-science.com . After this we are going to have short break and dinner. We then plan to have a lecture on autonomus vehicles from Cal-polys own Dr. Chis Clark.
Keep your eyes peeled for more pictures and information from the work shop!
-Katie, Dani, Colin and Neils
