March Break Open House a great success
A foggy start to the day did not deter hundreds of visitors to the Physics and Astronomy atrium for the 2015 March Break Open House.
Volunteers for this year were Ian Mulholland, Stephanie Kirkvliet, Patrick Hatch, Danielle Whitfield, Peter Frank, Phin Perquin, Eugene Wong, Aaron Sigut, Tamie Poepping, Alex Buchel, Shantanu Basu, Carol Jones, Richard Holt, John de Bruyn, Margaret Campbell-Brown, Peter Brown, Kanthi Kaluarachichi, Wayne Hocking, Henry Leparskas.
It was exciting to hear that families were came from as far as Mississauga, Peterborough, and Ottawa in order to learn what Western offered in Physics and Astronomy.
Special this year was a 'Meet and Greet' with three of our alumni, Jeremy Gill (CEO Parallax Innovations), Arvand Barghi (studying Internal Medicine at Western), and Laura Lenkic (Astrophysics graduate student). Unfortunately, Laura could not make it at the last minute, but several families had a wonderful chance to speak with Arvand, Jeremy, and several professors.
