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.
On Wednesday the 12th of December we already celebrated the 13th birthday of our lovely study association S.A. Astatine. While we are only turning 13 on the 23rd of December we decided to celebrate it anyway, hoping we have not jinxed it by doing so. The 14th board had prepared a three-course meal appropriate for the theme ‘Classy Christmas Casino’. After dinner, there were some casino games for the members to enjoy.
Thanks to everyone for attending and helping us to make this an amazing birthday party!
On the fifth of December, all beware Astatine had a party in the TAP, their local bar, On the floors and tables just about everywhere peppernuts were sprinkled and filled up a jar. There were Sinterklaas themed songs of rock, pop, and even some rap, Everyone was cheerful all night long, except for a few that got hit by the traps. Because the night is dark an full of terrors, winter is coming beware the ice, But not tonight, a night so very bright with all the loving girls and guys. Games were played, and gifts were won, Sinterklaas was a bit delayed but did not fail to come.
Thanks all for attending the party, it was fun and let’s do it again.
On the morning of the 21st of November, we had an excursion to Lithium Werks. The excursion started with a presentation about the organisation of the company, after which we got to have a look at the production process. The morning ended with a lovely high tea which some employees joined as well, so we got to talk with them about their experience at the company.
We want to thank Lithium Werks for having us and organising the amazing excursion!
Yesterday, Sjoerd Kraaijenhof gave a presentation on behalf of InnoEnergy about the possible master courses they offer and his own experience with the renewable energy track. We would like to thank him for his interesting presentation!
