SEFS 508: Plant Modeling Ad

Hi there,

Please find a flyer for SEFS 508: Plant Modeling, a grad course occurring AU 22 that is also open to undergraduates and might be relevant to some of your students.

Announcement Blurb:

In this course, we use our knowledge about the physiology and ecology of plants to build and apply process-based plant ecophysiology models. Through modeling, we address questions like “how will crops respond to climate extremes?” and “When will the cherry trees on UW campus bloom?” The primary focus is on explanatory models but other approaches including statistical and machine learning models are discussed. Basic understanding and curiosity in plant ecophysiology and interest in scientific computing are recommended to take and enjoy this course. We will do some coding in Julia language using Cropbox package as the modeling framework (https://github.com/cropbox) but fluency in programming is not required. See course materials at: https://github.com/uwkimlab/plant_modeling

Fridays, 10:30am-1:20pm (AU 22)

Rocket Propulsion Undergaduate Engineering Opportunity

Dear fellow engineering students,

My name is Edison Moss, the president of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS@UW) and the project manager for our Aperture Astronautics Rocketry project. As we move into the 2022-2023 school year, we are looking to recruit 15-20 UW engineering students, preferably Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering sophomores, juniors, and seniors. All other engineering majors and minors are encouraged to apply. Due to the nature of this project, technical experience is preferred but not required. As a part of this organization, you will have the opportunity to actualize your engineering ideas while gaining real-world aerospace engineering experience.

We are looking for individuals who have interest in:

– Rocket Propulsion & Fluid Mechanics

– Mechanics of materials

– Calculus or Differential Equations

– Linear algebra and/or MATLAB

– Schedule tracking/project management

If you or someone you know may be interested, please follow this link (https://forms.gle/iEQmueXYCE4sBXhx5) to apply and help share this opportunity. Thank you for your help in growing our organization!
