Room 227 upgrades

Women in Science posters in the redesigned 227 PSYC

For those that do not have courses or meetings in the new and improved 227 PSYC, go have a look! The floors are now carpeted and the tables have new feet installed to make room rearrangement much easier. Most importantly, we have included artwork created by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya as part of her Beyond Curie series to highlight significant women in science and technology. Much better than blank walls or seascapes, in my opinion.
