We are organizing a 4H robotics team that participates in the 2015 First Lego League Robotics Challenge. The team consists of 9 highly talented 5-7th graders and myself, Michelle, and Ryan from our HF graduate program. Programming robots and thinking about trash and recycling (this year's theme) is going to be fun.
The 2015 meeting should be fun. Most second year students are attending, and we have two presentations (Tuesday and Thursday, see below). Please make sure to leave open Wednesday night for the traditional University of Idaho dinner for students, faculty, alumni, and friends of the HF program at the UI.
Presented a talk on "User-friendly Password Systems – a Cognitive Perspective" at my favorite conference in Hood River, OR, at the end of the summer. Lots of interesting people, talks, and conversations.
The new semester will start next week and I am excited to start data collection again. Teaching HCI and Cognitive Psychology this semester.
Even though we are missing Chris for the summer we couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a lab picture on the last day of classes. Jeff and Sam will graduate next weekend - we wish you all the best for the future. Connor and Daniel are poised to finish this summer - best of luck and we hope to celebrate soon.
