It is also vital to acknowledge the enthusiastic and effective participation by the Microventure students: Matthew Lanoue, sophomore in Manufacturing Engineering; Joshua Brantner, senior in Industrial Engineering and Management; Mayank Verma, graduate student in Manufacturing Engineering; Casey Radtke, junior in University Studies; Stephen Wurm, senior in Business Administration. New recruits are … Caitlyn Aho and Laura Axvig, sophomores in Microbiology; Jared Graetz, junior in Manufacturing Engineering; Michael Hedlund, senior in Industrial Engineering and Management, and David Stenseth, senior in Manufacturing Engineering. These folks have been dedicated, creative and effective in establishing a project focus from a very broad topical area, researching and analyzing the technologies involved and creating a vision for the Team -- and not so incidentally, teaching their mentors.
