A Bittersweet Farewell from the Prosthetics Group

SAU USRI Prosthetics Group Presentation (1)During our final week of the Undergraduate Summer Research Institute, our prosthesis group’s work began to wind down.  Justin and Nick were able to make some adjustments to their circuit and circuit box, and now there should finally be a working circuit ready for next summer’s students to use! In addition, Dylan, Kristin, and Holly finished their EEG user’s manual.  It is now a 35 page document with about a million pictures; therefore, it should be very easy for next summer’s research group to set up the EEG machine correctly and begin collecting data.  We were not able to get the print head in time to finish printing out all of our objects.  However, the designs for the objects are completely finished, meaning it should be very simple for the students next summer to print them out and assemble them.  We spent a lot of time working on and practicing our presentation, especially since Dr. Prosise would not allow us to have notecards or any type of notes with us during the presentation.  It sure was a lot of technical information to remember!  However, we felt extremely prepared for our presentation, and we all felt that it went even better than we anticipated.  Dr. Prosise always knows how to push us to do our best, and we couldn’t be more proud of each other!  We cannot believe that our six-week research project has come to an end.  We are definitely going to miss our countless hours in the basement of Hayes, our many volleyball games, and above all, the friendships that we have formed with each other.  While this summer’s project may be over, we know that we will always have each other’s backs and our cherished memories.  Where one door opens, another opens, and there is always another egg to crack out there in our future!  Thank you to Dr. Prosise and Dr. Drake for leading our research group, our donors, those who helped us in figuring out how to work the EEG machine, those who provided us with our equipment, our EEG user’s manual testers, and everyone else who made our research possible. We couldn’t have done it without all of you!
