"NOLS: The National Outdoor Leadership School"

On Thursday, October 15, Steven Muschler 2011 will describe his summer experience in an outdoor leadership program:

The National Outdoor Leadership School runs various wilderness education trips throughout the world. I went on a thirty-day heavy backpacking trip in the Absaroka range in Northwestern Wyoming this past June. Such a trip brought a much needed change of pace for a Grinnell College computer scientist, as it was unusual not to have access to a computer for an extended period of time. Instead my experiences dealt with cooking from scratch, not being eaten by bears, and not getting lost. I will also talk about the basics of how a GPS system works, as it was the only thing with a circuit in it that I touched for thirty days.

Refreshments will be served at 4:15 p.m. in the Computer Science Commons (Noyce 3817). The talk, NOLS: The National Outdoor Leadership School, will follow at 4:30 p.m. in Noyce 3821.
