Learning by osmosis

Crary Lab, where visiting scientists are given office and lab space

Tonight was an astrophysics lecture by the shuttle bus driver who is taking a hiatus from his PhD.

Last night was the movie showing of the first all women traverse to the South Pole; hosted by one of the four women, she works here in laundry.

Wednesday was a fascinating slide show at the monthly 'yacht club' meeting by a contract diver about his career as a commercial diver in Antarctica and the rest of the world.

Then there are all the science lectures held by the visiting and resident scientists.


  1. She sounds like another overqualified laundry person!!

  2. Wow. Talk about building a culture and community...I love the PhD shuttle driver!
