Students present final projects for 2014 NSF Microrobotics REU
This year's students, and their affiliations, are: Benjamin Levy-Wendt (Seattle University); Jackie Ong (Harvey Mudd College); Rachel Gehlhar (University of St. Thomas); Alex Quijano (East Tennessee State University); James Tigue (University of Idaho); Alex McIntosh (College of Saint Benedict & Saint Johns University); Alyssa Lerner (Yeshiva University); Justin Yim (University of Pennsylvania); David McPherson (University of Tennessee at Chattanooga); Victoria Wu (University of Missouri-Kansas City); Greg Vance (Connecticut College).
As you can see, in addition to conducting some pretty intensive research this summer, the students also had a great time and made some lasting friendships!
Here’s a list of the 2014 projects, students, mentors, and faculty advisors.
