The DC area held a reunion over fondue last night (including a special guest from the Chicago area who was in DC for a conference!). We had representation from a wide range of classes and even a TA/Govie reunion! We all enjoyed catching up about PGSS-related memories including fence-painting, sleep deprivation, and illicit water-fights. Many of the attendees discussed how PGSS led them on their career or academic path, which covered a wide range – from designing the Mars rover to advocating for K-8 chemistry education to patent law. Submitted by host Simon Krauss (PGSS 2006) Thanks for volunteering, Simon!
