Thank you to everyone who participated in and helped run our second UNC BCBP Field Day on Friday, June 23rd, 2023! Over 30 trainees, staff, and faculty within the department came together for an afternoon of friendly but fierce science-themed competition. Congratulations to the winning pink team – Garrett Chappell, Dillon Sloan, Nick Randolph, and Kevin Slep – who claimed victory after beating out the gray and blue teams in the final challenge and engineering the most robust boat. Some photos from the event are featured below.
