Ashley and Greg performed summer research at Boeing Seattle
Graduate students Quentin Fouliard and Johnathan Hernandez participated at the 22nd AIAA International Space Planes and Hypersonic Systems and Technologies conference held in Orlando, FL from September 17-19, 2018. They attended talks related to hypersonics and took the opportunity to network with renowned experts in the field present at the event. In addition, they collaborated with AIAA UCF and NASA to set up interactive booths for the Generation STEM event which was part of the conference’s program.
Lab members Khanh Vo, Sandip Haldar, Kyle Rushton, and Alexander Olvera volunteered at Generation STEM hosted by Lockheed Martin to engage and stimulate middle school students’ interest in the field of aerospace engineering. They worked with Asst Chief Engineer Teresa Kinney from KSC NASA to assist with her and Dr Raghavan’s Structural Dynamics technical committee booth as well as the AIAA UCF student chapter booth in the setup and the activity. The activity at the structural dynamics technical committee booth involved practical applications of dynamics in structures and the use of Chladni plates to explain the concepts of dynamics and vibration modes.
With AIAA UCF student chapter, they also demonstrated the benefits of the opportunities offered within the club and showed how kids can get a head start into the aerospace industry.
