CeFPaC Experience: 

It's refreshing and inspiring to work in a lab that is home to such a wide range of technical knowledge, resources, and experience(s).  My experience thus far has shown me how a thorough understanding of the fundamental fluid mechanics can be the avenue to creating drastic change by the smallest of alterations.  Each group member brings a variety of skill sets and expertise to the lab which I think enhances the project quality and for that, I am grateful.
