WSEC’s Networking Forum Featured Gingerbread Construction Projects

The Women Scientists and Engineers Council held its annual Networking Forum on Tuesday, December 15, 2015.  Over 60 Lab employees and senior managers gathered to participate in a gingerbread construction project as their 30-minute networking activity.  The categories were: most original, difficulty of design, and most representative of the Lab.  The winning designs were (respectively): rows of solar panels and a windmill; an ALS structure; and the surrounding view from the Lab (with the Golden Gate bridge, turkeys, deer, and a “no parking” gingerbread sign), as seen below.  The event also had raffle prizes and a catered lunch.  You can view the photos here.

This forum was hosted by WSEC, and supported by the Laboratory Directorate.  For more information on WSEC, please visit our website or email
