A year in the lab

This is a yearly schedule for the laboratory.

There are plenty of events such as taking classes, presenting results at presentations and QM meetings, conducting demonstration experiments at Lorenz festivals and open campuses, and deepening friends through recreation.

AprilEarly: Laboratory MeetingWe decide the staff of the laboratory and have discussions.
