ARCS Foundation 2013 National Annual Meeting, "Science in Paradise: From the Depths of the Ocean to the Edge of the Earth." Our meeting opened with a chance to visit with old freinds and meet new ones at a reception. We had a number of opportunities for celebration and learning, from training that is essential for our ARCS Foundation to work, to the celebration luncheon in honor of our ARCS Lights, to experiences designed to increase our knowledge of the cutting edge in science and technology. Our science speakers and panelists fascinated us with topics ranging from the ancient science of Polynesian navigation to the fate of the universe to the Mariana Trench to volcanoes on earth and the solar system.
