Clothing for the course is casual. We can never predict what our weather will be, as it sometimes changes from hour-to-hour. You can probably expect daytime temperatures around 70°- 80° F. There may be rain, but usually no snow! Evenings are usually cool, a light jacket or sweater is suggested. A tour of our laboratories in the Research & Technology Park, a "graduation" banquet and more is included.
