High School Students Conduct Engineering Research at ONU
Devin Kisor and Kevin Romey, both Bluffton High School seniors, are conducting research this summer at Ohio Northern University under the guidance of Dr. Jed E. Marquart, professor of mechanical engineering.
The students are able to research at the University because of a grant from the Ohio Space Grant Consortium, which is funded by NASA. They are taking part in a program designed to provide research experience to high school students who are interested in engineering careers.
Kisor and Romey are using a wind tunnel in the ONU Thermal Sciences Laboratory to collect data on wind tunnel model shapes and using computer software to create models of the wind tunnel tests. Kisor and Romey's data will be compared to data collected by ONU students in fluid mechanics laboratory experiments.
Kisor is the son of Drs. David and Shirley Kisor, and Romey is the son of Mike and Amy Romey.
