Ask any of the 275 students in the Physics & Engineering Department at Fort Lewis College what a “sprite” is, and they’re probably not going to tell you it’s a soft drink or a green fairy from a mythical land. Their responses might be something more like this:
“A ghostly flash above the clouds.”
“Violent, beautiful bursts of energy.”
“Vertical, red-orangery lightning.”
“A rare occurrence.”

Demolition began on a section of Berndt Hall that will be the new home of the Fort Lewis College Geosciences, Physics, and Engineering (GPE) Building. The new building will be three times larger than the old structure, which was built in 1968. Completion of the new facility is expected in fall 2016.

Four FLC students got to experience first-hand the challenges of designing, developing, and building – and then presenting in public – a robotic vehicle for traversing the surface of an alien planet.
Students from the Physics & Engineering Department put their creations to the test in April at the 8th Annual Colorado Space Grant Consortium Robotics Challenge, held at Great Sand Dunes National Park. The site is so like an alien world, in fact, that it is where the two Viking Mars Landers were tested before their pioneering voyages to Mars in 1975.
