Design team places third at NASA-sponsored competition

A team of Texas Woman’s University undergraduate kinesiology students placed third in a statewide NASA-sponsored design competition, continuing the internship program’s string of successes in a crowded engineering contest.

“I am pleased with the teams' efforts this semester,” said Rhett Rigby, a Texas Woman’s associate professor in kinesiology and the design team’s faculty advisor. “We placed well, and I felt the team learned so much this semester, which is what it is all about.”

The TWU seniors also took first in the poster category, second in peer review and fourth in model division at the two-day Texas Space Grant Consortium Design Challenge Showcase held outside of Houston. The competition wrapped up on April 25. Team members Joseph Mallillin (team lead), Jessica Brent, Alyssa Flores, Kenneth Ponitz and Cally Wacaster received scholarships from TSGC for their project.
