Another exciting day here at MIT! First, students had a chance to make their own Google cardboard goggles in a virtual reality workshop where they developed and tested out their own virtual reality simulations. 

After a speedy lunch, students had a programming masterclass using Gameblox. Students designed, created and tested their own games with very successful results. [VIDEO]

We then headed to a chemistry magic show from Clubchem (an MIT undergraduate chemistry community) where we learned about acids and bases. Afterwards we saw an excellent acting performance about the life and work of double Nobel prize winner, Marie Curie (that is, the actress portraying her). 

We also attended a brilliant presentation about creativity and being yourself from Jonny Sun, a Ph.D. candidate at MIT who is a playwright, an artist, an architect, an engineer and a designer. On Twitter, he's jonnysun — an "aliebn confuesed abot humamn lamgauge”. He showed the students how to look at the world as an outsider, to use a naive viewpoint plus curiosity to learn about the planet that we live on. He even stayed afterwards to sign autographs for the students.

An amazing day was had by all. 

Until tomorrow,
