After building a 3D printer for a class during his senior year, John Kray BA ’17 enlisted the help of Zach Rose BA ’18 to build and sell innovative desktop 3D printers. Their most recent model is so easy to use that Lewis & Clark purchased one for the physics lab.
Watzek Librarian Parvaneh Abbaspour recently presented new alumna Cyan Cowap BA ’19 with an intriguing opportunity to illustrate the biomedical imaging textbook that Professor of Physics Bethe Scalettar and Lewis & Clark law school alumnus James Abney are writing.Student research presentationsLewis & Clark’s high-performance computing (HPC) system has been propelled by a collaborative initiative driven by professors, staff members, and students. Although many are unaware of this HPC system—named BLT for its worker nodes “bacon, lettuce, and tomato”—it is paving the way for current and future research opportunities.Becoming a finalist for the Rhodes and Marshall scholarship requires outstanding academic prowess and character. Katie Kowal BA ’17 interviewed for both scholarships following an endorsement from the college and much support from faculty who believed Kowal was a perfect candidate for these distinguished awards.Benno Kolland BA ’21, a rising sophomore from Santa Cruz, California, has built and launched a rocket to a height of two miles—higher than the altitude of Mount Hood. His next step? Bringing commercial space flight within reach.Student research presentationsPhysics presentationsPhysics presentationsThis summer Lewis & Clark acquired a computational server that will improve the speed and ease of research calculations. Researchers studying computational physics, genetic sequencing, and climate modeling have already begun to imagine how this powerful hardware will enhance their research.
