Leah Krombach was awarded the John Anderson Summer Research Scholarship. The Anderson Scholarship Competition is held as a means to encourage students in the aerospace related fields to discuss research, exchange knowledge, and generate interest in the field of aerospace engineering. As part of the competition, students submit a scholarly paper describing research performed while at the University of Maryland.

Leah?s scholarly paper highlighted the importance of her research project titled Design of a 3D Helmet-mounted Heads-up Display for Space Exploration. Leah expressed the need to better equip astronauts with improved technologies which can enhance responsiveness and efficiency during extra vehicular activities. By creating an integrative 3D visual interface projected on to an astronaut?s visor, Leah hopes to open the door toward new innovation in integrative visor display technology. Impressed by her scholarly paper and research, the Anderson Scholarship Committee awarded Leah the $3,000 prize and plaque.

Congratulations Leah!
