Veterinary Technical Sciences Students Attend State Convention in Lansing
State Convention is held at Michigan State University as a way to recognize student accomplishments for the past year. State Level Leadership Contests took place and students had the opportunity to listen to great motivational speakers. Our delegates attended sessions, visited the State Capital, met with representatives, and voted for new State Officers for the coming year.
Students visited the research farms where they were able to see cows with fistulas, which we talk about in in class when discussing nutrition and research. We spent time looking at the various housing options for horses on campus, and we visited the sheep research facility to see the baby lambs. Some students even tried their hand at milking a cow. Students ate in the dorm for one meal so they would know what to expect. Another stop was at the MSU Dairy store to get some of the best ice cream imaginable, and the MSU bookstore.
Engineering Students Compete at Square One Network Underwater ROV Competition
Engineering students competed at Square One Network's annual Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) competition. The class designed and built the underwater ROV's using half inch PVC piping and four bilge pump motors. The students competed in Roseville, Michigan in five different events; picking up objects from one location and placing them in another, retrieving objects floating on the surface, and measuring items below the surface of the water. The last event of the day was drag racing. Students earned three first place and two second place awards.
