On Thursday, May 25th, 2017, CDE team had a day out golfing in celebration of the success of the CDE symposium and workshop held last week, May 18-19, 2017.
Tired and hungry, 23 Georgia Tech students and their advisor landed in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on the afternoon of Sunday, May 8, 2016.
It was getting on toward dark — too late for them to travel three hours to their final destination — so they made their way, as planned, to a local hotel. One among them, Patrick Pierre, had grown up in this small Caribbean nation, so he knew what to do when he saw mango trees laden with ripe fruit just outside their hotel.
