This year, we were lucky the MCEC school was a live event again! Although the event was originally planned in Apeldoorn, last-minute changes caused a change in location, and we all enjoyed the nice countryside of Zwolle.
During this week, we could enjoy very nice and diverse lectures related to chemical and physical science, statistics, machine learning and data visualization. In between there was enough time to catch up or learn to know the new members.
The PhD teaches PhD session illustrated nicely how we can relatively easily learn from each other, and it also revealed that together we have a high knowledge density in complex chemistry and physics.
Two social activities, a pubquiz and karaoke on Monday evening and sport event on Wednesday afternoon, were organized by the C-team and showed the competitive sides of each and every one. Concluding, this week showed that the MCEC community is diverse, inspiring and fun, which perfectly reflects how we visualize modern science.
