Meet Nicholas Rienstra, a rising junior studying engineering mechanics – aerospace. This summer, he’s diving into hands-on research in the Wright Lab. His research focuses on developing new technology to optimize scientists’ ability to handle samples under microscopes, enhancing the study of pathogens and other biological entities.

Rienstra enrolled in Summer Term early on in his Badger journey. In the summer before his freshman year, he participated in the Mechanical Engineering Summer Launch, where he got a head start on his degree and an early taste of dorm life, making friends that he is “still very close with!”
