Last night, in honor of Colorado Appreciation Day (a semi-legitimate holiday), Slivka baked brownies. Additionally, Slivkans got in touch with their creative side by drawing elaborate sharpie tattoos. Using a clever bit of chemistry, the drawings were sealed using a combination of baby powder and hair spray, which formed a liquid bandage-like coating to protect the art. Science for the win!
In other news, Slivka recently decided to adopt the octopus as our official mascot. Hopefully a name will be appearing in the near future.
The past week has seen a number of entertaining events. On Monday, Slivka welcomed the first group of this year’s prospective students, and played several Slivkan classics, including Humans vs. Zombies and One Night Werewolf. That same night, Slivkans revisited the pleasures of coloring, accompanied by a calming playlist of Sinatra tunes.
Tuesday night included an interactive discussion with Professor Brian Pardo of the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS), a specialist in Artificial Intelligence and Music. There were also freeze pops for all.
Wednesday night, Slivkans made corn-starch based “Oobleck” with Academic committee. Fortunately, no one got stuck in it.
