METECS is very excited to welcome 3 interns to our team this summer!  All 3 of them are going into their junior year at the University of Texas at Austin.  Alec Griffin is pursuing a degree in Computer Science and has written a Bible Verse Storer and several games in his spare time.  Amy Quartaro is studying Aerospace Engineering and has worked on several robotics projects.  Austin Middleton is majoring and Computer Science and is a technical co-founder of “DelegateIt – a personal concierge service” where he contributes to software development.  These interns will spend the summer working on some fun and technically challenging projects in the areas of Mixed Reality, Dynamics, and Robotics.  We are looking forward to an exciting and productive summer with Alec, Amy, and Austin!
