Alum Success

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Project Description: Product Development Projects

Team MTD designed, developed, fabricated, assembled and tested a prototype anti-thrombosis device, in collaboration with LSSU’s Product Development Center (PDC). This device was a redesign of a previous senior project/PDC prototype for Dr. G. Chandran, of the Cardiovascular Research Institute of Albuquerque, New
Mexico. It uses a new technique to prevent blood clots in the legs of non-ambulatory patients. The design requirements included small size, low power, low noise, and precision timing of events to ensure optimum performance.

The Unique Properties of Sand: Its Use as Criminal Trace Evidence

Whittney Laderoute

Sand was collected and analyzed from five beaches in the upper peninsula of Michigan: The Shallows, Brimley State Park, Point Iroquois, Big Pine and Pendillís Creek. Tests were undertaken in order to determine the reliability of sand as trace evidence in criminal investigations. Size and visual comparisons were made using a compound light microscope and chemical composition was determined by using SEM-EDS analysis. Results showed several size trends and SEM-EDS trends but gave no concrete evidence to suggest that the sand used in this experiment can be used as reliable trace evidence. Further research is necessary to confirm or deny this.
