Despite Vancouver’s stifling heat, turnout was great at the annual Department BBQ. The fiesta-themed event was organized by the Chemistry Social Committee. Highlights included the hot pepper eating and costume contests, as well as two chemistry-themed piñatas in the shape of a beaker mug and “Got Chem?” t-shirt.
The winner of the hot pepper eating contest was graduate student Alyssa Yeo from the Fryzuk group, followed in a close second by Yasmin Mawani from the Orvig group - both of whom took home a ribbon and sombrero. The best costume prize went to Montse Rueda from the Sammis group.
