SWE Greatland Meeting: Exercising Both Sides of Your Brain!

What a great turnout at our monthly meeting today! With 16 attendees, the meeting was lead by Stephanie Mormilo and Julie Morman who helped us exercise the right side of the brain. As engineers, we often use the left side - the reasoning side of our brains. With some simple exercises that was introduced to us at the meeting, it helped us use both sides our brains and expand our thinking in new ways. It definitely made us think of our natural reactions to situations and how we can challenge ourselves to tap into our non-dominant side. As always, it was great to see new faces at the meeting! We hope the interest continues in the future.

Midnight Sun Brewery Tour

Thanks to Katie Johnson for organizing a tour of the Midnight Sun Brewery last night. We had an excellent turnout with new faces and great social dinner after the tour. Gary, our tour guide, was very informative and highlighted interesting facts on the oldest brewery in Anchorage. We were also excited to find out that he started his career life as a civil engineer! Midnight Sun had a great selection of festive beers and even featured a tasty beer for breast cancer awareness.
