Florence Tan speaks at Penn State New Kensington

Florence Tan, deputy chief technologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, speaks at Penn State New Kensington

“Sometimes you take a journey, and it takes a very long time," said Florence Tan, deputy chief technologist of the Space Mission Directorate at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. "The journey requires many, many boosts. It takes great teamwork, great effort, and timing is everything. Squeeze every last advantage to get your journey, and if nature offers you a way to get there, I think you should take it.” Tan spoke to students and members of the public at Penn State New Kensington on March 28. Her motivational lecture, "Gravity Assists," taught audience members to pay attention to the gravity assists found not just in space travel and engineering, but also in life. Over the years, Tan has been a systems engineer, designer, manager and instrument operator at Goddards and helped build, launch and operate many space flight mass spectrometers on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover, Cassini Orbitor, Cassini-Huygens Probe, MAVEN, LADEE and ExoMars spacecraft.

Olivia Sribniak and Anthony Gyke, senior electro-mechanical engineering students at Penn State New Kensington, turned their EMET senior design project into a startup business. The duo created an automated roping dummy robot, formally called "Steer Logic." The concept has earned them a finalist spot in the 2018 Penn State Inc.U competition where they will pitch Steer Logic for a chance at investment funding.

Olivia Sribniak and Anthony Gyke, senior electro-mechanical engineering technology (EMET) students at Penn State New Kensington, set up their Arduino microcontroller for their automated roping robot. The concept, which started as their senior EMET design project, has also earned them a finalist spot in the 2018 Inc.U entrepreneurship competition. Their prototype is part of their official startup known formally as "Steer Logic."
