January 23, 2015

Last fall, three undergraduate students, Devin Cody (SM ‘17), Alex Lee (TD ‘17), and Jacob Marks (PC ‘17), under the guidance of Dr. David Poland participated in the 5th annual University Physics Competition, a 48-hour international contest for teams of undergraduate physics students that focuses on analyzing real-world scenarios using the principles of physics. Their paper, which received a Silver Medal, focused on identifying stable planetary orbits around a binary star system.
