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.
Two committees joined forces and organised an amazing event: The Astatine Sushi Workshop! Organised by LoA and IMCo 30 members of our association made some true Sushi art under guidance of our own Sushi master Judith. From California till Enschede, everything went on rolls. Not everyone perfectly mastered the making of Sushi, but well, there are more fish in the sea so it was also possible to taste some made by others. It was definitely a fun activity, food always makes us happy.
In february 2019, Astatine visited the luxoriousskiresort of Davos-Klosters with 33 people. For a full 7 days we explored the region on our ski’s and snowboards with a good portion of speed. Ofcourse, a picture of the ‘highest association of the UT’, on the highest point of Davos, could not be missed!
On the 13th of February, the destination of the yearly Europe Trip was announced during a drink. In 2019, Astatine will be visiting the cities of Prague, Brno, Bratislava, Vienna and Stuttgart! There we will be visiting local companies and enjoy the cultural attractions. Find out more about this trip on the website.
On the 6th of February, together with 4 other study associations, a culture fair was organised. International students showed their culture to the visitors, by handing out local delicacies and playing local games. It was an exciting evening!
