Campus News!

Hi Everyone!
March 9 was a big day for our campus; we had two very important and exciting events that occurred: The 25th annual ME 72 Design Competition and the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of the new Schlinger Laboratory.

This year’s ME 72 Design Competition was entitled: "Revenge of the Hindenburg." Back in October, students enrolled in the ME 72 class were given a "bag of junk" and the task: to design and build airships and robots to maneuver a specific obstacle course (shooting and gathering ping pong balls, and moving through a hoop 15 ft above the ground). They were given 20 weeks for the task to build robots to compete in a "Robot Wars"-like event. People from the Caltech community came to the Brown Gym to cheer on the different teams. Team Up, consisting of senior Robbie Paolini and juniors Long Nguyen and
Paul Suffoletta took home the win šŸ™‚ Congrats guys!

In other news, the new Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Building had its ribbon cutting ceremony. The new building is finally complete and is getting ready for labs to move in–Hooray!
Here are a few pictures I took of the new Schlinger Lab:

A member of the Caltech Dance Troupe, Dannah also practices yoga and aerobics. After graduating from Caltech, Dannah plans to enter the work industry; she has worked at the Caltech Biological Imaging Center and has had internships with Boeing in Los Angeles and Schlumberger in Houston, TX (see previous Caltech blog, ā€œAdventures in Internshipsā€). Her second blog ā€œClass in Session: E/ME 105ā€ discussed her experience in an engineering course that involved designing for (and traveling to!) the developing world of Guatemala. Read her latest blog: ā€œSweet Life of a Second Term Seniorā€ to see how she keeps busy with her senior thesis and extracurricular activities.
