University Students Compete at SAMPE 2010

07 May 2010

When the doors at the Washington State Convention Center close on Thursday, May 18, 5,000 people will have discovered the latest developments in not only the composites but all of the advanced materials industry. The SAMPE 2010 Student Bridge and Wing Contests start at 10:00 am on Tuesday, May 18 in the North Lobby of the Washington State Convention Center.

As part of the SAMPE 2010 conference and exhibition, the Lightweight Bridge and Wing Competition creates great interest amongst industry leaders, exhibitors and students to observe new and creative composite building material projects. Students representing 19 universities will be focused on which university has built the strongest lightweight bridge or aircraft wing yet?

Dr. Niranda Taly of the California State University – Los Angeles willingly takes on the coordination of this project as its chair, motivated by the passion of the competition’s participating students. “Their innovative work coupled with the energy of these young engineers not only excites, but also gives me hope the next great aerospace and civil engineers might be right here in Seattle.”

The SAMPE 2010 exhibition hall, featuring nearly 300 companies, is the largest exhibition in the Society’s recent history. The exhibition will showcase the innovation and cost-saving processes available for industrialists searching for methods to improve both product and productivity. The exhibit hall will be open Tuesday – Thursday, May 18 – 20, 2010.

NetComposites will be attending the show – please contact us if you would like to find out the latest about our Research,Technology Transfer and Information activities.
