Last week we raised a glass and said goodbye to Dr. Jiho Choi, who successfully defended his thesis at the end of October. We wish Jiho all the best as he begins his new position at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, looking at extensional rheology. Congrats, Jiho!!

The Girls’ Adventures in Mathematics, Engineering, and Science (GAMES) camp attendees learned about viscoelasticity timescales and formulations through making and playing with silly putty and oobleck. Is it a solid, or a liquid? As seen below, it was hard to tell who had more fun, the girls or us!
