Developing Interactive Digital Signage to Promote Exploration-Based Learning
Justin Bak, Michael Fryer, and Phil Curtiss
Why Interactive Digital Signage?
- Museums want to interact with visitors
- Cannot fit all information on a topic into one physical exhibit
- Want to promote learning more on a topic through exploration
3-D Photogrammetry for LiDAR Calibration
Jacob Clarke, Marvin Speece, and Jeremy Crowley
The growth of drone technology has provided an avenue to create 3-D images of a desired region. We combined photographs to create a point cloud model which we compared to a point cloud created from the LiDAR (Light Detection And Radar) data. By comparing these two point clouds, we can later determine calibration variables for the LiDAR system.
The Amplification and Characterization of Mycobacteriophages MyPhage and SolarFlare
Erin S. Fogarty, Hannah E. Sparks, Tavi R. Wise, and Marisa L. Pedulla
Bacteriophages are viruses that infect and replicate in bacteria and are being researched for medical applications. MyPhage is a Mycobacteriophage discovered in Anaconda, Montana in May of 2009. The student found the phage in soil from a potted plant. The background of SolarFlare is unknown.
Developing a REST Framework for Medical Device Data Using FHIR Standards
Tyler Fricks, Kevin George, Julie Miller, Phil Curtiss, Charie Faught, Janet Coe, and Casey McGruder
Healthcare technology development and advancements require more device interoperability and information exchange. Electronic Health Records currently are limited to close sourced applications and hinder the use of applications and devices from third parties. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) allows for developers to use agreed upon standards and design new APIs for easier data exchange. The researchers aimed to show current medical devices could be updated to FHIR standards and stream data via protocols using a RESTful framework.
Short Range Imaging Using Ultrasonic Signals
Liam Gildehaus and Bryce Hill
Develop hardware and software to make distance measurements using ultrasonic signals. The main goal is to use the signals to create 2D and 3D images at short ranges and in confined spaces.
Water-based Electrically Conductive Ink from Carbon Nanomaterials
Isaac Gilfeather and Dario Prieto
A stable, aqueous, carbon-nanomaterial (CNM) based ink can be prepared with the aid of surfactants.
Design, Fabrication, and Testing of Lightweight and Durable Components from Composites
James Jeffrey, Dario Prieto, and Ronda Coguill
With a constant push towards lighter, stronger and more fuel efficient vehicles, the use of composite materials is a proven way to achieve this goal. Composite material manufacturing is widely used in large scale manufacturing, but is a challenge for small scale operations, such as MT Tech. The idea is to construct a one piece composite seat for the MT Tech Baja team that meets the requirements of the Baja SAE Collegiate Design Series.
Developing a Program for Calibrating and Streaming from a Software-Defined Radio

Investigating the Impacts of Varying External Power on Bio-electrochemical Denitrification
Autumn Lineback, Daqian Jiang, and Taymee Brandon
Nitrate discharge leads to eutrophication, the largest water quality problem globally. Eutrophication results in "dead zones" in oceans and considerable economic loss. Bio-electrochemical denitrification is a promising solution because bacteria directly use electrons to reduce nitrate and produce nitrogen gas.
Testing the Presence and Viability of Seed Bank in the Joiner Gulch Area in Anaconda, Montana
Augustina Osabutey, Pedro Marques, and Robert Pal
The overall objective of this project is to test the potential seedbank in the Joiner Gulch area that could be activated for ecological restoration in a greenhouse-based seedbank test.
Annotation of Bacteriophage BigPaolini
Bo Rost, Morgan Paolini, Hannah E. Sparks, and Marisa L. Pedulla
Bacteriophages were discovered nearly 100 years ago. With new interest in phages many phages are being analyzed and annotated to understand the diversity within the phage world.
Increasing the Efficiency of a Stirling Engine Using Mechanical Resonance
Rebekah Russell and Peter Lucon
A Stirling Engine typically operates:
- On a closed cycle of compression and expansion
- With two pistons
- With three different configurations based on piston configuration
- With hot and cold gas regions creating a pressure differential, forcing the pistons to oscillate at nominally 90° out of phase from each other
- The mechanical oscillation is mechanical energy, which can be converted to electrical energy when coupled with a voice coil.
Curation and Characterization of a Collection of Mycobacteriophages
Hannah E. Sparks and Marisa L. Pedulla
Bacteriophages are the most abundant biological entity on earth, with an estimated number of 1031. Bacteriophages specifically kill bacteria. Phages that infect M.smegmatis could potentially be used as an alternative to antibiotics.
