Last week I gave an invited lecture at the Annual Huggins Science Seminar at Acadia University. My talk dealt with the current state of robotics for outdoor environments.

The Huggins Science Seminar is an event named after Charles Huggins, the Nobel prize winner who attended Acadia for his undergraduate degree. The seminar series brings in senior high school students from around the province to hear lectures on Science. The lectures are, by and large, delivered by scientists who are nominated, selected, and flow in for the lectures. I was impressed by the calibre of the students and the coordination of the whole event, and had a chance to meet Spencer Barrett over breakfast, a Canada Research Chair in Botany from the University of Toronto, who also gave a talk there.

Acadia is in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. It's a small town and very picturesque, being located right on the Bay of Fundy. I wish my trip had allowed more time to do some sight seeing or to contact local friends.
