LOCAL STUDENT PARTICIPATES IN SDSM& T UNDERGRADUATE
The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) Undergraduate Research Symposium was held Tuesday, April 20, 1999 in conjunction with the 3rd Annual Senior Design Fair. Scott Johnson of Belle Fourche and his partner Dustin Harrison of Rapid City took second place in the Engineering Division for their project entitled “ Novel Antenna for Ground Penetrating Radar.” Johnson is a sophomore Electrical Engineering major at Tech, and Harrison is a junior Computer Engineering major. The Symposium gave students an opportunity to share their research experiences with peers, faculty and staff members.
First place winner in the Engineering division was junior Brigette Hornig, a Chemical Engineering major from De Smet for her project entitled “ Combustion Synthesis in Gasless Reacting Systems.” In the Science/ Math division sophomore Jeremiah Marsden, a Chemistry major from Sheridan WY, won first place for his project entitled “ Synthesis of a Novel Indigoid Polymer by Tandem Aldol Reactions.”
Other presenters and their project titles include: Jessica Gould ( Jr, CEE, Rapid City), “ Necessary Stream Characteristics for a Cold- Water Brown Trout Fishery”; Terry Apa ( Sr, ChE, Rapid City) and Mike Peterson ( Sr, ChE, Rapid City), “ Design of High Temperature Laboratory Reactor for Catalytic Dehydration of Propane”; Travis Downing ( Jr, Met, Irvine, CA), “ Nanomechanical Analysis of the Interphase in Polymer Matrix Composites”; Erik Koski ( Jr, ChE, Rapid City), “ The Addition of Fine Silicon Powder to Solutions Used in the PCA Processes��; and Matt Meland ( Sr, ChE, Cedar Rapids IA), “ Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and Pump Sizing Experiment”.
