New year, New lab
After getting everything set up for a whole semester in 2018, this semester is for getting things done, and we are off to a good start. Our academic supervisor, Dr. Uwe Stein, found us a lab: the old wave lab underneath Eng Inn. There is a room just for Winds of Change to use and a machine room next door that we have access to. However, there was one condition for use: we had to clear out all the old stuff that had accumulated in there since the 1980s!
As you can see, there was lots of old PhD projects and various other curiosities to shift!
So last Friday, all the team leaders had the joy of carting all this mess (and then some) around to the skip. It wasn't the most glamorous job, but we did stumble upon a few interesting bits and bobs, like a box full of wind turbine parts!
After 3 hours, the place was finally cleared, neat and tidy. There are just some shelves and a workbench left, ready for the design teams to get to work!
Next set of photos will be once we've stuck a bunch of posters up and made a sign to make it officially the Winds of Change lab.
