OK, not really sure that this question fits well here (it is a little off the wall), but I have just started in a position as the director of our science research honors program, so I am looking for interesting ideas about co-curricular activities or social events to hold in conjunction with our 10-week summer research program.
As an example, we are actually doing a new social event this week (made possible because of some left-over liquid N2 donated by physics). We are doing a "Seventh Inning Stretch", a 2 pm baseball themed liquid N2 ice cream party with baseball music and movies playing in the background. We also have an upcoming speaker on Science Research Ethics, a resume workshop, and a poster preparation seminar. Anyone else doing anything interesting or creative with your summer students?
