Miah and Mark completed the floor and one wall for the USF CaveSim this past Saturday! Here is +Liana Boop pretending it's a real cave! 

We knew that it would be 6' by 8' -- but in real life, it looks pretty small, so now we're thinking of doubling it! Will you be joining us to see it at the 2013 USF Engineering Expo?

Once monthly, a student member of the KRG gives a short talk on their research. Jackie used her presentation to practice for her talk at the GSA Fall Meeting.
