  3. Short lecture about CRL by Prof. Nobuo Ishizawa (Director, Ceramics Research Laboratory, NIT).
  4. Laboratory tour to 4 research groups of CRL, escorted by CRL teaching staff and assisted by Ph.D. & undergraduate students of NIT, from 09:40 to 10:40. The visitors were divided to 3 groups. Ardent and polite attitude of Cambridge students was impressive. There were many questions and answers.
  5. Taking a picture of visitors and CRL staff (photo below).
  6. Words of appreciation from a Cambridge student. A handmade print (shown below) illustrated by another student was given to CRL.
  7. The visitors left CRL by the sight-seeing bus.
  8. Troubles: No serious trouble. One of female students felt sick (because of too humid & hot climate in this season?), but was recovered after a short rest. The sight-seeing bus was too large to change the direction in CRL.
