WELCOME 2015 SUMMER INTERNS

METECS is thrilled to welcome 2 interns to our team this summer!  Kim Rink is a junior at Purdue majoring in Aerospace Engineering and minoring in Computer Science.  She did an internship last summer at Qnergy in Utah and spends her free time playing the guitar, hiking, fishing, and giving tours of Purdue to prospective engineering students.  Matt Casso is a Sophomore at Harvard majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Psychology.  He worked last semester at a tutoring company designing curriculum for middle and high school students.  He is also a Dallas Cowboys fan and brews his own beer.  These interns will spend the summer working on some exciting and technically challenging tasks using Edge, Pong, and mRest.  We look forward to a fun and productive summer with Kim and Matt!
