Recently, the House of PaNE (Physics and Nuclear Engineering) hosted the Fall Research Symposium for engagement with research conducted during AY20-1. Comprised of over 21 research projects, many cadets, four departments and other external agencies, this event marked the culmination of several months of work.
All the presenters did an outstanding job, but the following groups/presenters earned special recognition:
Best Physics Presentation: Cadets Jarrod Broussard, Jacob Bohnemann, Anthony Dinallo, John Boyle, Nathanial Beck, and Nathan Schubring for "Establishing Drop Time as an Object Measurement of Laser Effectiveness"
Best Nuclear Engineering Presentation: Cadet Thomas Williams for "System Generated EMP Modeling Comparing LSP Fluid and Kinetic Model Simulations"
Best Space Science Presentation: Cadet Easton Bolton for "Development of Inter-Stage Separation for Solid State Rocket"
Best Overall: Cadets Vincent Gasparri, Cameron Hudson, Alexander Dang, Andrew Obrzut, and Luke Sanders for "Applying Machine Learning to Particle Type Identification Methodologies".
