Have you order your 2015 SURF T-shirt?  

Each summer, SURF participants leave behind a legacy at NIST in the form of a SURF designed t-shirt. This summer's SURF cohort produced 2 designs based on a blueprint and surfer theme. Available in short sleeve ($10), long sleeve ($14), or hoodie styles ($20), the SURF t-shirt committee will be accepting orders in the NIST main cafeteria starting July 22, 2015 during the hours of 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Please bring your completed order form and payment (sorry, cash only) at the time of purchase.  All orders must be received no later than July 28, 2015. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own your piece of NISTORY!
