UWRF physics students present their research on the Ice Cube Project in Washington D.C..

Recently, on April 13th, 2010 three UWRF students (Kyle Jero, Samantha Jakel and Drew Anderson) from physics Professor Jim Madsen's Ice Cube project presented their work at Posters on the Hill, a prestigious undergraduate research event sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research.

The event was held in the Rayburn House Office building in Washington, DC, and many members of congress--including Wisconsin's Ron Kind--attended to view the posters. The group visited five congressional offices---Obey, Ryan, Kind, Feingold, and Kohl. Senator Feingold spent time talking with the students as did staffers in the other offices.

Drew, Samantha, and Kyle were also selected to present a Council on Undergraduate Research award to NSF Director Dr. Arden Dement. The CUR event showcasing the undergraduate research and scholarship of 60 selected students from across the nation honored Dr. Dement for a lifetime of service to the NSF and to undergraduate research through a long and distinguished career.
