Micscape Acknowledgements: Many thanks to the students for sharing their enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing an article for Micscape formed part of their course assignment, which was a neat idea proposed by Ted Kinsman the course instructor in the summer, to which we readily agreed! Thanks to Ted for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen. Also thanks to Michael Peres, the dept. head for his introduction and for the department's generous collaboration.
