The event is designed to support women in STEM by highlighting achievements of engineers and researchers in the field of planetary and space science. Lamm presented her string-model design of NASA’s Curiosity Rover to provide richer outreach demonstrations to the public.
  • Track and field athletes Jasmine Malone and Christopher Grant were named Big Sky Conference Athletes of the Week after their performances at the Mountain T’s Invitational.
