Sponsored by the University of Iowa Graduate College, this conference brought together undergraduate students who have been conducting summer research projects in UI departments and programs across the University's colleges.
Working with faculty mentor Prof. Vincent Rogers, Fiedorowicz presented a poster "Geodesic Deviation and TW Gravity."
The 2023 Edge of Space cohort is being Eleven undergraduates from Iowa and across the country participated in the Edge of Space Program, a summer course that provides research experience in space-based instrumentation for observing Earth and space. Students built small instrument payloads that will be mounted on a drone and a high-altitude balloon to take measurements of the Earth's atmosphere and space environment above. The Edge of Space Program is led by Allison Jaynes, associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and Susan Meerdink, assistant professor in the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences.
