A while back, Team UV was selected to present some of our research regarding our underwater vehicle and, more specifically, its propulsion system at the 2014 Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research, which will take place at the California State University, Fullerton. So this Saturday (November 22nd), for anyone who might be in attendance, we will we will be presenting during the Oral Session III (from 1445-1545 hours) in room SGMH-2211!
Also, we want to thank those of you who have contributed to our fundraising campaign and mention that we have already raised 11% of our goal of $5,000 thanks to your generous donations! Thank you for your support and please continue to help spread the word!
We also want to note that no donation is too small and not a single penny donated will go to waste, it will all be used to increase the quality of our vehicle, to add capabilities (through additions to the sensor suite or additional drag-reducing technologies, etc.), and to enable us to conduct better testing (i.e. the construction of a flow tank for actual flow visualization). As follows from the above statement, any money that we raise above the $5,000 will be put directly into the project in one of many way, including (but not limited to) those listed above.
Lastly, I want to remind our readers that we will be posting campaign progress updates on average once a week (Wednesdays 1000 hours) and that you can find a full-sized PDF of our pull-tag poster on our Sponsors & Donations page if you would like to print one out and post it to help get the word out. If you would like to help out in other ways, it would mean a lot to us if you would tell your friends/family/coworkers/etc. about our fundraising campaign (and possibly ask them to share it as well), share it on Facebook, or perhaps even just spread the word about TeamUV.org in general, as our biggest goal with regards to this website is to inspire interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Any help is greatly appreciated and please come back tomorrow for Ketton’s Presentation post!
