ECi Team in Orlando!

Hi everyone! We made it to Orlando, and it is soooooooooooo hot.

Michelle R, Nicole and Erqin arrive on Saturday and we spent the first 2 days trying to get our poster finished and printed. It took much longer than planned but we were so relieved when it was finished!! You can see it in a picture below.

Straight off the airplane, working on the poster.

Sunday we played mini-golf before getting caught in a huge storm. We then visited Downtown Disney to start our tourist adventure! We spent Monday at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and had a great time. It was definitely a hot day but we saw some cool animals and attractions, including a Lion King show that was amazing.

Michelle C arrived Monday evening and we finalized our poster presentation. Today was an early day to get to the conference for a student breakfast and ECi orientation. This afternoon was the poster presentation and it went great!! We interacted with judges and role players from the problem scenario. We think we did a great job 🙂

Tonight there was a Grand Reception for all conference attendees – it’s huge! They needed more chairs. Tonight we are very tired but we need to finalize our presentation for tomorrow. We are hoping to catch some technical sessions too. we’ll post again tomorrow – thanks for reading!
