Two Le Moyne physics/pre-engineering students participated in the sixth-annual Lockheed Martin "Ethics in Engineering Competitionm: which was held in Bethesda, Md., from February 27 - March 1, and reached the quarter-final stage.
Lindsey Bush '23 (physics with civil engineering concentration) and Nicholas Carinci '23 (physics with mechanical and aerospace engineering concentration), accompanied by Associate Professor of Physics Stamatios Kyrkos, Ph.D., as their faculty adviser, reached the final-eight stage in a competition that started with 71 participating colleges and universities. The Air Force Academy prevailed in the quarter final round, and went on to win the whole competition. The eight quarter-finalists were recognized and given prizes during the award ceremony at the end of the competition.
In each round of the competition, teams competed in pairs, each school representing one of the stakeholders in a realistic business case. Their goal was "not to win by forcing the other team to lose, but to take the lead in coming up with a win-win solution," and to "demonstrate an understanding of the ethics / business / engineering aspects of the case".
