Hey yooo,

I'm writing this newsletter during the cookie decorating event, and Marty says hi to all! The cookies that some members are making are really really pretty, though the buttercream I made wasn't that great, unfortunately :( But oh well, not all cookies are born equal, I guess.

Next week we have the RDW escape room coming up! If you want to practice escaping from your troubles and worries, come join! The winning group will receive a bunch of cool goodies and even an internship/graduation project offer!

We also have the Initiatives brainstorm coming up on the 4th, where Justin will give some clarity on how the initiatives budget can be used by all members! It will also be a nice space to brainstorm some ideas on how to spend moneys 💸💸💸

Last but certainly not least we have a very significant CoverTalk coming up: "The unreasonable effectiveness of statistics in ML"! What is Machine Learning? How does it work, and why did the Romans forget how their great sewage system works? If you want to find out, join the CoverTalk!

That's more or less it for this one! If you want to receive future newsletters physically by post, feel free to print this one and send it to your address! It's fun (I do it every week)!



We want you to be in a committee!

A committee is a group of friends that work towards a common goal. You can learn about all sorts of topics such as budgeting, planning, sponsoring, and much more! See the website for a complete overview of committees that are looking for members!

YearbookCee: The year 2021 is definitely one for the books...the Yearbooks, that is! Do you want to help document events inside and outside of Cover? Are you interested in editing, making beautiful layouts, and gathering written pieces and pictures? Then apply for YearbookCee now!

IlluminaTee: If the words talks, bootcamps, and researchers make your heart flutter, then look no further! The IlluminaTee organizes educational events related to AI/CS/HMC, together with the Commissioner of Educational Affairs.

DataDump: Hello dear interested members. Do you want to start building a data portfolio while doing fun experiments and trying out different informative representations of data? Then this is your committee!

Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Amber, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!

Nice to know

Interested in Data Science?: Join the data science symposium committee! Curious about how it intertwines with (applied) physics and astronomy? Together with T.F.V. Francken, Sirius A and FMF, you will organise a data science symposium for October 2021! Interested and want to know more? Send an email to the board! Applications are open until 14th February.

Startup Competition: Are you interested in learning everything you need to create a startup business while having the chance to win €400? Then the startup competition is all you are looking for! Due to the success of last year, the startup competition will be hosted again on the 10th of february. In this competition you will get bootcamps on product design, marketing/business plans and pitch training. The competition will be based on a patent provided by the FSE. Registrations are now open on our website. You can sign up as a team or alone so don’t hesitate and sign up now!

GCBD learning communities: GDBC (Groningen Digital Business Center) is organising a series of learning communities on topics such as Agile, Blockchain and Digitalisation and Stustainability. Participants will also receive a certificate ;)

Online self-support: For many students, an online and anonymous approach is a first step towards mental support. Mirro’s self-help modules provide you with online support if you are going through a difficult time. There are several topics you can choose from, e.g. anxiety, work stress or worrying. These e-health modules are also very suitable to support you with topics such as alcohol, gaming or mourning.
