Well attended lunch colloquium of Marinke van der Helm

Well attended lunch colloquium of Marinke van der Helm

On Thursday March 27th the first lunch colloquium ever in the history of HV Ockham took place. More than 30 persons were present in the Ravelijn to listen to the interesting talk of Marinke van der Helm about her experiences in America, the land without limits. In Boston she investigated a cellular model of the blood brain barrier, but because this research was quite confidential, she talked about her time in America: The problems with finding a room, her room and roommates, her colleagues, Thanksgiving and some typical aspects of the American culture. She punctuated this with a lot of photos, for example of the well known yellow schoolbus, a giant roasted turkey and an huge glass of ice tea.

During this lunch colloquium the Sympcie arranged the lunch. The free lunch consisted of ‘broodjes knakworst’ and was well appreciated by all the attendees. The symcie looks back at a very succesful first lunch colloquium and is already looking forward to the next one. This lunch colloquium will probably take place at the end of April. The exact date, time and speaker will be announced later.

If you know a speaker for the following lunch colloquium or you have a great idea about what to eat, just let the Sympcie know! You can contact them by sending a mail to sympcie@hvockham.nl. The photos of this lunch colloquium can be found in the photogallery!

Diner lecture ‘Geheime Praktijken’ was a great success!

Diner lecture ‘Geheime Praktijken’ was a great success!

Last Tuesday March 5th, the annual diner lecture organized in cooperation with KIVI Niria and Studium Generale took place. The theme of this year was ‘Geheime Praktijken’ (Secret practices). While everybody was enjoying a plate full of tasty lasagna, macaroni, salad and/or baquette, the first speaker, Constant Hijzen, started with his talk about the history of secret intelligence services in the Netherlands. After a short break in which the still hungry people could get another plate of delicious food, George Vosselman continued. He spoke about several techniques to make aerial photos and how those photos can be interpreted. To illustrate this, he showed several detailed photos made by helicopters, airplanes or satellites.

 

The sympcie looks back at a successfull and well attended (more than 130 participants) dinerreading and great cooperation with Studium Generale and KIVI NIRIA and is already looking forward to the next activity: The lunch colloquium of Marinke van der Helm. She will speak about her experiences during her internship in Boston. While enjoying some ‘broodjes knakworst’ you can listen to her talk.
