The Women in Computing group at NYU Courant is hosting a special pre-finals meetup in the 13th floor lounge of Warren Weaver Hall on Monday May 4th from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. Our general theme is to take a break from studying and have some healthy eats, relax, and enjoy some activities that will give those math and computer science neurons a chance to recover!

In addition to having 'brain food,' we'll be demonstrating the use of a Makerbot Replicator2 3D printer, on which we'll be making giveaway CIMS clips that can be used as bookmarks.
