ND ENERGY | June 1, 2017
An important part of ND Energy’s mission is to support energy-related education and outreach throughout Notre Dame and its surrounding communities. The third week of April offered three opportunities to interact with students and the public to spread the word about energy research at Notre Dame. May was filled with excitement as we congratulated our Energy Studies Minor graduates and Mishawaka High School interns on successfully completing their respective programs.
On Thursday, April 20, the Alumni Association held its annual Leadership Conference on campus. ND Energy welcomed participants with an opportunity to interact with group members from four different ND Energy-affiliated laboratories and to test their physical endurance by pedaling their way to a scrumptious smoothie on the ND Energy smoothie bike. ND Energy research participants were Gary Beane, Hartland laboratory in Chemistry; Michael Humbert, Maginn laboratory in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering; Tyler Spano, Burns laboratory in Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences; and Hunter Ford and Laura Merrill, Schaefer laboratory in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
Christopher (Chris) Simms (’88) President-Elect of Alumni Association Board even took time out to show his support and gear up for the smoothie taste test!
