Another spectacular warm sunny morning in Lethbridge greeted us.  We met for our breakfast at 7:30am

with Calvin Cycles being drawn on paper plates and  Dr. Who dominating our breakfast conversation.  It was off to another morning of public viewing (schools)
for our finalists and meetings for the delegates.
We met for lunch and then headed off to our Discovery Day sessions held at Lethbridge University.  The favourites for Aaron, Brandan and Govind  were trying to crack the codes at the Logic and Puzzles session, Aysar was impressed with his session on performative science and Theresa enjoyed seeing

 the human brain in a jar at the Behavioural Neuroscience lab.  Some of us braved the high winds by eating our dinner outside while the die-hard Leafs fans took their meals and crowded around Scott's live feed for the game.  Aysar and Govind ran off their meal by joining a group of delegates from all over the country in a pick up soccer game,  Aaron chilled, while Brandan and Theresa played cards and combat frisbee (better to ask them what this involved).
Theresa made some great trades with the Aussies today as well.
We met later in the evening to go over some last minute details and each of their presentations in preparation for the formal judging day tomorrow.  They are all confident about what they have to say and Scott and I are extremely proud of what they have accomplished so far.  It was a very low key evening, and just as well.  They were in their rooms by 9:30pm and can look forward to a good day tomorrow.
The quote of the day has to be from Theresa after hearing Aaron explaining his animated version of the Calvin Cycle to Brandan, " I think rocket science must be easier than that.  It reminds me of why I don't like plants!"

The Lethbridge Viaduct, commonly known as the High Level Bridge, was constructed between 1907–1909 at Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada at a cost of $1,334,525
 It was built as part of a major diversion of the Crowsnest Pass route between Lethbridge and Fort Macleod. The river crossing was previously over a wooden trestle measuring 894 m (2,933 ft) long and 20 m (66 ft) high; an impressive structure in its own right.
Length: 1,623.86 m (5,327.625 ft)
Height: 95.7 m (314.0 ft) above river bed
Materials: 12,400 tons of steel
Deck spans and lengths:
44 plate girder spans each of 20.4 m (66.93 ft)
22 plate girder spans each of 30.15 m (98.92 ft)
one riveted lattice-truss of 32.6 m (106.96 ft)
Rigid braced steel towers: total of 33
 Crosses the Oldman River 
The Lethbridge Viaduct is the highest and longest steel railway bridge of its type in the world !
