Football at Greenwich National Park


Our football skills were put to the test on this blustery day in late May, 2009.  The boardwalk was beautiful, the scenery was stunning, the air was fresh, and the food at PEI's best "Fish & Chips" spot was delicious!

Skating on the "Puddle"
Every now and again the unversity campus acquires its own pond, which is really nothing more than a huge puddle.  This November, we decided to test our skating skills -- for some of us it was the first time in years!  It was a lunch break to remember!
Skiing at Brookvale
Our lab members come from many different countries.  Some of them saw snow for the first time this winter!  We decided to give them a true PEI welcome at Brookvale Provincial Ski Park.
IUPAC Conference
On July 13th to 18th, 2008, we hosted the IUPAC Conference on Biodiverstiy and Natural Products.  The program included plenary lectures, invited lectures, and Oral/Poster presentations, as well as plenty of opportunities to tour our beautiful island!  The conference finale included a catered lobster meal on a beach.
On October 17, 2008, the Kerr group participated in Bioquest, during which 200 grade five students from around the Maritimes are invited to come and enjoy hands-on demonstrations of science in the real world.  We had a fantastic day with these young and enthusiastic learners.
Party at the Cottage!
We kicked off the summer of 2008 in style at Russ and Stacey's cottage. There was badminton, soccer, swimming, boating,clam-eating, and of course, a delicious barbeque on the deck!
