On Saturday, we participated in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) event at the Fort Atkinson Farmers Market. Great chance to show kids and families (and even grandmas!) how we’re both teaching and researching drones for mapping at the GIS Center.
As part of our Research Infrastructure Grant, we presented the results of our biomass mapping from the 2016 and 2017 seasons at the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium 2017 Conference. Thanks to Jeff Smyczek for all his help on this project!
Thanks to Thomas Slawski for the opportunity to present our water array project at the 2017 Fox River Summit. We made connections with several area groups and identified potential sites for semi-permanent installations of our device.
Jeffrey Pohorski, one of the video producers in Media & Marketing at UW-Whitewater, did a great job telling the story of our adventure down the Rock River this May:
Under the new FAA Part 107 rules, Dr. Compas is taking the test to obtain a commercial “remote pilot airman certificate.” This will allow us to conduct University research flights under the Part 107 rules.
