This past weekend at UAT was filled with amazing opportunities with the AvNet Tech Games! It is here that I participated with my teammate John in the games to build the fastest computer and troubleshoot a machine on site for the sake of prizes, scholarships and the ribbons! Although we didn't take home first, it was still a fantastic opportunity overall, at least in the networking aspect and seeing what other kinds of technologies were available. There were such events of the middle and high schoolers building robots to compete in races and such, Desktop Domination in which many students and individuals competed against the clock to diagnose a system, building a machine from scratch and other events such as the Network Expert Categories. Needless to say it was an amazing day full of festivities, and I even won some ribbons for participating!
In other related news though, yesterday was an incredible opportunity to see the Lunar Eclipse or the Blood Moon as many would call it. It marks the first part of the Lunar Tetrads (Series of four lunar eclipses), and was incredible to say the least! Some friends and I went down to South Mountain, a couple miles away from campus, to see the event, where we packed blankets and snacks to behold the phenomenon firsthand! It was certainly a sight to behold!
So many things are happening all at once! It's certainly amazing and I highly recommend both experiences to anyone! It proves to be a wonderful time to spend with my colleagues and friends!
Until next time,
