Ethan Burnham-Fay, Xiangzhi Yu, Fenghe Zhong, and Allie Browar placed second in the 3rd Annual ASPE Student Competition held in Portland, Oregon in late October this fall. The group spent all night working on a laser scanning system using MechBlocks from MOTUS Mechanical.
Also, these four students, along with Chen Wang, Dan Brooks, Kaitlin Wozniak, and Bill Green were all recipients of NSF Grantee Scholarships to attend the ASPE Annual Meeting.
MechE undergraduate student and PIG member Loudon Blake has been making parts for the practice carillion. His work has been part of the EAS141 Machine Shop course. More details on the project can be found here. Nice work Loudon!
