Around WID, the student population ramps down over the summer but our researchers certainly stay busy. We asked our researchers to answer the ubiquitous question “What Did I Do on My Summer Vacation?”. They generously offered a glimpse of their varied activities both in and out of the lab and classroom. Each WID theme is represented in these postcards. Clicking on the slideshow takes you to their stories.
