For past two months, Evan participated in many research projects and activities, including BioPak (biosensing system) setup, operating the FLAIM simulator, observing data collection. Evan said his future goal is to become an aerospace engineer and his research experience would help him reach the goal. Well done, Evan!
SHARE Lab members had a social night. Corey and Jessica joined the event while they are visiting Lubbock for a summer course. Lab members enjoyed foods, drinks, and board games.
SHARE Lab members enjoyed the end of Spring 2023 semester. Some of the lab members leave for a full-time job after graduation and others also leave for summer internship.
