Shepherd Laboratories Themed Safety Meeting

Join the Minnesota Robotics Institute and the rest of Shepherd Laboratories in welcoming Cassidy from the Minneapolis Fire Department. We will be reviewing general lab and fire safety inside our newly-renovated facilities, on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, no less. Hopefully this talk will ironically prevent the future non-voluntary use of eyepatches!
