Congratulations to Evan Updike!

Evan Updike, a junior majoring in Biological Systems Engineering, was selected as one of four recipients of the Darrell J. Nelson Summer Undergraduate Internship in Energy Sciences Research for the summer of 2017. Professor Adam Liska is the faculty member who sponsored Evan Updike’s application and will also sponsor this undergraduate’s work experience this summer. At the end of the paid internship, each student will prepare a summary report that describes their experience and the accomplishments or results of their work experience in energy sciences research.
The internship is in its fourth year and is named after Mr. Darrell J. Nelson, who served 41 years on the Custer County Public Power District and Nebraska Public Power (NPPD) Boards. In 2005, Mr. Nelson proposed a partnership between NPPD and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the purpose of engaging in energy sciences research. The following year, the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research (NCESR) was created with NPPD’s support.
