In the end of July, Alena and Jörg and Alena joined the lab retreat of Sonja Lorenz' laboratory. The lab retreat was in the beautiful Haus Neuglück near Bonn and the main part of the program was a workshop about Creative Problem Solving (CPS) given by Tim Dunne (Knowinnovation Ltd.). Joerg and Alena enjoyed the workshop very much and learnt how to use techniques of CPS in research as well as in everyday life. On top of it, they had lots of fun including an awesome BBQ and exciting time climbing in the trees :-). Thanks lot Sonja for your invitation!
