Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Research Week events!
For the first time, the campus held a 90-second-video challenge, in which students had to explain their research in a brief, easy-to-understand way.
Erik Lau, with the MESA Lab, won an iPad Mini for his video “Efficient Arrangements: Distributed Propulsion for UAVS.”
Undergraduate winners get certificates of achievement and each one receives a $75 Amazon gift card; while graduate student winners get the same plus they each get $75 cash, as well.
Here is a list of the other winners:
