Congrats to Lauren Smith on winning Validictorian at the spring convocation! Lauren is an iSci and physics grad and when asked by the Daily News, "What was the most important lesson you've learned so far?", Lauren replied, "That (almost) anything can be solved by using a Taylor series expansion." Ha! It's funny 'cause it's true. Check out the rest of Lauren's interview here: http://dailynews.mcmaster.ca/…/meet-this-afternoons-scienc…/
