S.A. Astatine is the study association for Advanced Technology and Nanotechnology students at the University of Twente. We are an international, non-profit association that support the students (and staff) of Advanced Technology in providing a community, creating opportunities for personal development, and evaluating the curriculum. This is done by the means of a combination of both educational and extracurricular activities.
It has become a yearly tradition to visit the Grolsch Brewery in Enschede. This year we went with 22 students! We first had a tour of the brewery where it was explained to us how the beer is made and after that we got to taste some of their beers in their pub: 1615. All in all it was a great excursion!
On the 12 of June, the ATAC commission organized a trip to the local paintball hall in Enschede. With almost 20 subscribers it was definitely a successful activity. The track was laid out really good which made the games a lot more strategic and fun. Everyone had an amazing time and ended the game with a smile on their face. Therefore this activity will surely be a yearly thing 😉
In the weekend of 17-19 May, Astatine went to conquer the Tjeukermeer in Friesland! It was an active weekend, full of sailing and playing boardgames in the evenings. Although the winds were not always in our favour, we had some real sailing going on! Nobody drowned though, luckily.
