04/29/2011

Among the many contestants, CJ Niehaus was elated to win an award for her floating fish. Her award was a piece of sculpture from the well known ceramic artist and SIU ceramics professor, Pattie Chalmers.

CJ utilized physics calculations of buoyancy in her creation of this floating fish. This method is currently being documented for an upcoming journal article on the combination of physics and art.
