Kettering University B-Section
SPS Leadership Scholarship
I am a junior at Kettering University, majoring in applied physics. Kettering University is a small STEM university in Flint, Michigan that has a rotational co-op program. I rotate between taking classes at school for 3 months and working as a co-op at an engineering firm for 3 months. I work at a company called Valeo in the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Department. I collaborate with a Senior Expert in CFD to theoretically simulate air going through an HVAC unit and fluid through other thermal components responsible for the heating and cooling system in a car. I also enjoy holding study sessions as a Supplemental Leader for introductory physics courses during school term. I currently serve on the 2016-2017 SPS National Council as Associate Zone Councilor for Zone 7. I also serve as President of the Kettering University B-Section SPS Chapter and Physics Club where we participate in many outreach activities to increase interest in STEM throughout the community.
