Written By: Sam Million-Weaver

A team of undergraduate students majoring in materials science and engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison took top honors for their poster presentation at the 60th annual H.R. Bergmann Memorial Seminar, held April 10, 2018, at Milwaukee School of Engineering. In recognition of their thoughtful responses to judges’ questioning and polished description of their project, Courtney Hummell, Tyson Wolfe, Matthew Austin and Nicholas Curley received a cash prize of $100. Their winning project, sponsored by MS&E Professor Michael Arnold, proposed an approach to achieving selective ion transport through a graphene bilayer. The seminar was sponsored by the Milwaukee chapter of ASM-International, which is the world’s largest materials information society.
