Metecs welcomes 2009 summer interns

The Metecs team is very excited to welcome aboard two interns this summer.

Darius Williams is from Pearland, Texas and is a senior at the University of Texas at
Austin. In the Spring of 2010 he will receive a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace
Engineering and a Bachelor of Art in French. Darius recently participated in the UT/JSC
TRICK program, a modeling and simulation initiative where a team of 8 students
successfully interfaced OGRE, an open-source graphics engine with NASA’s Trick
simulation environment. Aside from his interests in dynamics, modeling and simulation,
and languages, Darius plays the violin and will spend the summer learning the cello.

Jessica Turner is a senior at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, dual majoring in
Electrical and Computer Engineering. While she is in school, she stays busy as the
president of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), vice president of
the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi, and an active member in Society of Women
Engineers. In her free time, she enjoys kickboxing and reading. Jessica has always
dreamed of working in the space industry and is excited to contribute to it this summer.

Welcome aboard Darius and Jessica!
