Trainee selected to attend Asia-Pacific Summer School

IGERT Fellow Bethany Carlson was selected to attend the 2nd Annual NSF-sponsored Asia-Pacific Summer School (APSS) in Smart Structures Technology. This summer school is aimed at lowering the barriers required to conduct cutting edge research in smart structures technology. APSS brings graduate students from the US, Korea, Japan, and China together for three weeks of focused activities useful for the advancement of the field. The international approach recognizes the achievements of the participating nations in smart structures technology as well as a common desire to pioneer a structured educational framework. Through this program, participants are exposed to leaders in the field, both domestic and international. Contact with these faculty, as well as with fellow participants, is intended to inspire students to continue to pursue international collaborative research.
