Who to ask for help?
During the first week, our Institute organizers and interns will be wearing Institute t-shirts of specific colors. These are:
Green t-shirts: Institute organizers. These are the six people who have been most involved in the Institute planning and can ultimately answer most questions.
Red t-shirts: Institute interns. Participants should feel free to ask the Institute interns any questions they have. If interns don’t know the answers themselves, they will be able to find the answers.
