Throughout summer 2021 and 2022, Jerry and Kyle taught a group of Memorial High School students the principles of 3D printing. The group learned to build their own 3D printer, how to determine and optimize print parameters, and even converted their printer into their very own powder melt extrusion (PME) printer capable of printing recycled plastics.
Congratulations Julia for passing her thesis background exam (TBE)! Keep up the great work 🙂
WOW! Undergraduate researchers Mark Zhang and Ruojia Li each won a Hilldale Research Fellowship this year! Congratulations to Mark and Ruojia, and huge thanks to the University of Wisconsin for the generous support.
Huge congratulations to our team member, Mark Zhang, who received THREE highly competitive scholarships this year. They are the Ackerman Scholarship, Edward J. Panek Memorial Scholarship, and Ackerman Summer Research Scholarship. We are extremely proud …
In the Spring of 2022, Kyle and Rachel organized an exhibit for the UW College of Engineering, Engineering Expo. The Expo was over two days, the first of which catered to local middle school students, and the second was open to the public.
The exhibit was titled, “Playing with Plastics: How Scientists Make Meaningful Materials.” We wanted to help visitors understand the chemical and physical differences between commonly encountered plastics. Interactive demonstrations included making slime, vat and extrusion 3D printing, and dissolving packing peanuts. The whole group helped out with the exhibit and was awarded 3rd place by a panel of judges.
Huge congratulations to our team member, Ruojia Li, who received THREE highly competitive scholarships this year. They are the Richard Fischer Scholarship and Don Brouse Memorial Scholarship, each from the Department of Chemistry, as well …
The Group happily welcomes its newest members, Harshal and Daria! We’re glad to have you join us and do awesome science 🙂
The Group happily welcomes its newest graduate students, Anthony and Brittany! We know you’ll do great things!
The Group warmly welcomes Julia as our newest graduate student! We’re very happy to have you! 🙂
This work was done in collaboration with Prof. Paul Zimmerman and Prof. Allison Roessler, and provides experimental and computational understanding of a recently discovered method for controlling alkene stereochemistry in MF-ROMP.
