Loyola physics majors work on many projects throughout their college years. Here is a sampling
Actually, It Is Rocket Science
Collin's project was entitled "Actually, It Is Rocket Science." He inserted a Vernier accelerometer with Bluetooth capability into the payload section of a model rocket. He wrote a LabView program to control the launch and collect data on the rocket trajectory.
Make Your Mark: Physics and Art Installation
Jordan's project was entitled "Make Your Mark: Physics and Art Installation." She wanted to create an interactive art exhibit that encourages spectators to consider their impact on the world. This was accomplished with a motion sensor that could respond to human movements and change the color displayed on the wall. NeoPixel lights were wrapped around a mirror that also changed color according to the motion. Jordan worked with LabView and an Arduino controlled by LabView.
Dave adapted an exercise bicycle to generate electricity to power a radio, fan, and LED. The fan and LED were automobile parts. Dave designed the circuitry.
