18 people plus Shawn. Most, even his adviser wore jeans!
Sitting and watching, I could see the water fountain. We had been warned not to drink the water - tastes pretty gross. I did find out WHY it gets so gross. An older Asian man (likely a professor) rinsed his hands in the fountain, splashing water into the mouth piece. ICK!
Shawn used a beautiful, simple PowerPoint. Dark purple with white text and lively movies.
This work may have biomedical applications, such as automatic testing.
I think he used the word "crap" when talking about the device of the experiment.
