General Meeting (11/28/11)

Vampire Secrets Research

Friday 10/28 @ 4pm, PAI 3.02
No, it’s not about Twilight, thankfully. Dr. Thomas Garza, our distinguished speaker, will be giving us a talk about his research in vampires and the importance of them in our society today. This is a great event to prep our minds for the spookiness of Halloween night, so get pumped! Free food will be provided afterwards.

Boo! It’s that time of year again where everyone gets a ton of cavities after eating too much candy in one night. This is a big event for the entire city of Austin, and we really need your help with managing our booth at the event. We will meet at the Greenhouse at 11am-12pm to help load our materials and carpool to the Frank Erwin Center at 12pm. The actual event starts at 2pm, but we need to set everything up by 1:45pm, and this is where you come in. If you are interested in dressing up, helping out, and having fun, then please fill out the information in the survey below:

Our costume theme for this year is Pokemon, so don’t be left behind on the trend!

We will host a Haunted Maze and Science Corner. Also, we will have pin the mustache on Einstein.

Grant Writing Workshop and Ice Cream/Movie Social
Friday 10/21 @ 4pm, PAI 3.02

For those interested in grants or need the extra help in editing your own grant application, don’t hesitate to learn more at our grant writing workshop this Friday. We’ll help you get started on the basics of grants, the mindset of how to approach one, and how to make your grant stand out from the rest.

Afterward, we will be having an Ice Cream and Movie Social topped with floats, liquid nitrogen ice cream, and pizza! We will be watching the first Pokemon Movie (“Pokemon?!”) because:

1) It deals with the issue of cloning.
2) For our upcoming Longhorn Halloween event, SURGe will be dressed up as Pokemon!

So if you don’t know what on earth Pokemon is about, then you better start learning.
