Cherokee High School Seniors, Amanda Butler and Ashna Jain, completed research at the NJ Governor’s School of Engineering and Technology (GSET) this summer at Rutgers University.
GSET is an intensive residential summer program that brings together some of New Jersey’s most talented high school students.
During enrollment at the GSET, Butler and Jain authored research papers that were submitted and accepted to be presented formally at the MIT Conference in Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 1, 2022.
The 2022 IEEE MIT Undergraduate Research Technology Conference is a venue where undergraduate students come together from around the world to present and discuss solutions to advance technology for humanity.
Butler presented a paper on the Mechanical-Based Design for Airfoil Structural Morphing and Jain presented a paper on Producing a Flight Profile for Drone-Based Zero Gravity Experiments with a Python Script.
Butler and Jain were thrilled to have been part of the Conference; Butler specifically stated: “I’m honored to have spoken at MIT. Attending this conference was a wonderful step in my academic journey, and I am equally inspired to conduct further research and to share my discoveries with the world.”
