Last weekend Team UV presented some of our fluids research for our underwater vehicle at the 22nd annual Southern California Conferences for Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) at the California State University, Fullerton. We enjoyed the opportunity to both get a look at some of the research students at other universities are conducting and to share some of what we have done, as well as to share the website, with students and faculty from other universities. We will also be looking into the possibility of bringing our research to more conferences in the future.
We would also like to update our readers with regards to the progress we have made in our fundraising campaign. Thus far, with your support, we have been able to raise $570! Thank you all for your donations and support, they will absolutely prove incredibly useful in the coming months as we begin to manufacture parts, have some of our more intricate components made, buy materials, equipment, and other components, and begin to design experiments and the necessary testing rigs. We would just like to remind our supporters to please continue to help spread the word about our project, share our fundraising campaign (GoFundMe.com/TeamUV), and if you feel so compelled, to donate to our senior project team to help us to reach our goals and produce our stealthy unmanned underwater ISR (Information, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) vehicle, which we hope can one day help to save lives by taking more of our troops out of the field.
Please remember to check back tomorrow for Abraham’s Presentation post!
