CeFPaC Experience: 

Working in CeFPaC has been a fantastic opportunity that has added immensely to my college experience. I've learned a great deal about experimental aerodynamics, gained hands-on experience working in wind and water tunnels, and I've had the awesome opportunity to design a new tunnel for the lab. I've worked with some really intelligent researchers on their projects and they've driven me to learn new things that I typically wouldn't learn as an undergraduate student in a classroom.
