Creating LOUD with music !

Miami student playing guitar

What do you get when you combine 7 Miami University students plus one uber-creative, heavy-metal assistant dean of students and 2000 attendees of the 4th Annual Science & Engineering Festival?  You get Creating LOUD. The annual festival, the largest of its kind, was a national engineering and technology event that occurred on April 16 & 17 in Washington, D.C.. Miami's music-focused exhibit provided a live demonstration where attendees could understand how engineers and computer scientists make volume possible, through instruments, audio systems and playback devices.  Why?   Because rock stars need volume!

Brian's Thank You  

Brian Kirkmeyer, Karen Buchwald Wright Assistant Dean for Student Success in the College of Engineering and Computing and 7 students interacted with over 2,000 festival attendees at their exhibit aptly called Creating LOUD using music to demonstrate how engineering and computer technology is at the crux of all things. "It's pretty awesome that I get to work with students like this on a regular basis". The 7 students represent an interdisciplinary effort:

  • Miranda Ferguson - Software Engineering major, and Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute member
  • Ndeye Guisse - Bioengineering/Pre-med double major, and Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute member
  • Nora Husani - Software Engineering major, and Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute member
  • Christina James - Mechanical Engineering major
  • William Meriwether - Music Performance - Voice major
  • Loren Reash-Henz - Music Education/Music Performance - Voice double major
  • David Ternik - Mechanical Engineering and Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute member
