Congratulations to Lorraine Guerin, recipient of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation award! Lorraine was chosen from a very competitive field of candidates.
Great news! An EMA 569 Senior Design Team (Alex Ames, Daniel Belongia, Kimberly Callen, Joseph O’Donnell, and Thomas O’Leary-Roseberry) has been chosen to present at the Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium, an international conference held in Germany this November. The team designed a unique electric airplane! Congrats!
Suzy Sandrik, Faculty Associate, has been chosen for the James G. Woodburn Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. She was recognized during the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day program for her superb teaching on 4/21/15. Congratulations!
Professor Wendy Crone has been chosen as a recipient of the 2015 Fellow Award by the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM). She will be honored in June. Congratulations, Professor!
We will also be having a normal AIAA meeting on Tuesday, March 17th, at 6:00 in 106 ERB. During this meeting, we will go over what events will be going on in the near future, along with a preview of the elections, which will be held in April. There will also be pizza, just like any normal meeting.
On Wednesday, March 18th, at 6:00 pm in room 106 ERB, we will be having a meeting with students in ANS (American Nuclear Society) and the EP department to go over what questions, comments and suggestions you have in order to make the entire department better. It is a good opportunity for your voice as students to be heard. If you are unable to attend, just send me (Adam Mayer) an email with your comments and I will relay them. There will be pizza at this event.
UW-Madison and US Forest Products Lab to host 2015 Midwest Experimental Mechanics Graduate Student Symposium Graduate and undergraduate students from UW-Madison and other Midwest Universities will be gathering in Madison March 28-29 to share their interest in mechanics and present their research. This event is being co-sponsored by the Society for Experimental Mechanics. More details at http://homepages.cae.wisc.edu/~blanchar/2015StudentConferenceAnnouncement.pdf
Our first AIAA meeting of the semester will be in room 106 ERB on February 10th, at 6 pm. We will be going over some events for this semester.
Here is an opportunity to be a part of research going on near Madison. You would need to pass a color blindness test, go through a brief interview about the study, and sign a consent form. You would be required to build a LEGO model inside a capsule mockup under artificial white light and the best part you would get paid $15 per hour. If you are interested in participating over Christmas break, contact Professor Blanchard (email@example.com)
Here's a reminder that there is an FAC with Professor Kammer this Friday at 4:00 at the Sett! It's a great time to hang out and relax before Thanksgiving next week.
I just wanted to remind people about the FAC hosted tomorrow at 4:00 pm at the Sett with Professor Bonazza! This will be a fun opportunity to meet other students and professors in a non-class environment. Also, the powerpoint from yesterday's meeting will be up on the AIAA website soon. If you missed the meeting (or any previous meeting), the presentations will be there. Lastly, there is a Engineering Student Org Fair for freshman in Intro ENGR 102 on Thursday, November 13th, from 9:55 to 10:45. Let me know if you're interested in making a poster or talking to some of the first year students on campus about joining AIAA.
I just wanted to remind everyone that there is an AIAA meeting tonight at 6:00 in 106 ERB. Also, please remember to bring your dues ($15 for one semester, $25 for the academic year).
