On March 16, classes from SIB took a field trip to UCSD. We were invited to attend the 2016 Kyoto Laureate Symposium. There was a power point slide that welcomed all high schools.
The principle speaker was Dr. Michel Mayor who found the first exoplanet, a planet beyond our solar system. He lectured on the process of how exoplanets are being discovered.
After the lecture, there was a question and answer period, and then food was served.
Once everyone was done eating, we were allowed to walk around the campus for a little while. By 5:40 everyone had reunited at the Triton statue in front of the Price Center. And sad to say, we had to leave.
