July 11th stared out like every other day at camp. There was a lecture in the morning about Nanotechnology by Dr. Nathan Cady, the last meeting of current directed studies, and seminars – which ranged from the physics of Angry Birds to operating 40ft telescope and learning about hydrogen power.
As the evening came, things started varying from the normal camp routine. There was after dinner entertainment (the how-to-braid seminar modeled their hair, Dean and Dakota entertained the audience with a clapping game, and Ozan and Abby did a little improv) followed by a lecture from Jonathan Sanfilippo about Space Debris. Then things started to get a little different…
Lecture was followed by a fashion show providing delegates with information on what not to wear vs. what to wear for a mystery event. Delegates were told to get changed into PJ’s and grab blankets/pillows then meet outside of the bunk house to be taken to a mystery location. They were led out into a technology-free zone back by the launch strip where the entire camp had a cabin meeting together and then was given time to just relax and enjoy the beautiful night sky.
