Smartluck #6: Justin Massa

August 04, 2010 by Nelida

After six wonderful weeks, our time with Shadelab has come to an end. We had our final Smartluck on Wednesday, August 4. This time, we had a lot of guests come in, including Justin Massa from MCIC. This smartluck was a bit different from the rest because for once, we were the ones that were presenting.

About 10 minutes before the Smartluck, Alex informed us that we were going to be giving a presentation about Shadelab and the work that we have been doing these past six weeks. Without much preparation, we began our presentation. Surprisingly, we worked well as a team and didn’t interrupt each other. As we were presenting, I realized that we had done so much in these past six weeks. Using the board as a reference,  we talked about all the research we did, all the projects we completed, and everything we learned. Suddenly, it didn’t feel like we were presenting to very important and highly influencial people, rather,  that we were talking with our friends about Shadelab.

After presenting and answering any questions that people had about Shadelab, we went back to the conference room where Justin Massa from MCIC talked to us about what he does and how that can relate to Shadelab. Overall, it was a great way to end the fascinating Smartluck tradition.
