I had an awesome day out at the McMaster University Campus for their Engineering and Science Olympics today! Besides competing with an amazing team and representing the best school ever (go RHHS!) there was tones of other really cool stuff to see and do. I mean for one the campus is just gorgeous!
There was even this random guy driving with this for no apparent reason (well other than it looks fun)
There was also a really cool Planetarium that we got a demo/show of. I didn't manage to get any photos (since it was obviously very dark) but here's a photo from the McMaster Website of it.
Lastly, throughout the day there were lots of Lectures and Demo's that we could choose from. Here's some photos from a very interesting lecture on Engineering and the Brain by Dr. Hubert deBruin! He made the lecture both fun and informative.
We also sat in on a Lecture/ Demo on Robotics by Dr. Ishwar Singh. The different examples he showed us were super cool!

This robot had a sensor that detected the dark line and followed it :)
