Exploring their research interests

Two University of Missouri students will explore their research interests in Germany this summer through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) program. Both Emma McDougal and Lara Stefani will have the opportunity to develop their research passions after recently being named DAAD RISE recipients.

Mizzou prepares Feist for career at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center

Kendall Feist grew up on a farm in Cologne, Minnesota, and had 101 students in his graduating high school class. When he arrived at the University of Missouri, he decided to set his sights on the stars — literally. Feist was a mechanical engineering major who spent most of his time outside of class on the Mizzou Space Program.
