SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division dedicates rockets to veterans

Posted by on Nov 13, 2018 in Organizations and Teams | 0 comments

This past summer the members of SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division were hard at work building a rocket for the annual Spaceport America Cup competition. This organization is a chapter of the international organization, Students for the Exploration and Development of Space or SEDS. This chapter was formed last February becoming an official Fulton Student Organization.

These students built a 10-foot rocket with more than 500 pounds of thrust to reach 10,000 feet in altitude and carry an 8.8-pound payload. With the help of a few industry sponsors as well as ASU’s very own KEEN Grant, the team was able to raise more than $15,000 to build the rocket and travel to New Mexico for the launch. The team also partnered with several non-profit veteran organizations including: Wings for Warriors, Team Overland and The Veterans Community Center. SEDS-ASU Rocketry Division advertised these organizations on their social media raising awareness for them as well as raising donations for their efforts.

INFORMS@ASU student chapter places second at Principal Cup Challenge

Posted by on Oct 2, 2018 in Competitions, News, Organizations and Teams |

Members of the INFORMS@ASU student chapter placed second at the Principal Cup after their presentation Friday, September 28, 2018.

The Principal Cup is an international operations research and management sciences analytics competition that challenges teams to develop an objective decision-making process to buy, sell or hold stocks which could be affected by emotional bias. Instead, the teams use historic data and operations research tools to decide what to do.

The team–Nathan Gaw, Logan Mathesen, Anson Park and Daniel Tran – developed kNN-Stock, a new decision framework that fuses machine learning and conventional stock-trading expertise to make optimal trade decisions.

The team will present their results to the sponsors of the competition, Principal Investment Firm in Des Moines, Iowa.
