Get Ready To Meet Velocero! (Official Press Release #2) Posted by: Kyle Smith on March 11th, 2011 - 12:11 PM
WEST LAFAYETTE, Indiana - March 11, 2011 - Velocero's early progress has launched them into a path towards great success in CGT 411. Their early progress is due to the team's strong willed motivation and direction to accomplish the overall goal to help better today's younger society. Motivation and direction is what makes Velocero a leading member among their peer groups in CGT 411. It is with those characteristics that Velocero has officially declared their final presentation on April 24, 2011 at 4:00pm in Stewart Room 322. Chris Ciuca - A World In Motion sponsor and Mark Vernacchia - GM Engineer will attend the final presentation.

Velocero is developing a simulation game that will be used as a complement to the A World In Motion Glider Challenge curriculum stated in the previous press release. The team's target audience will be middle school students (6th-8th grades) who want to learn more about Engineering and Technology for their own future. Since Velocero will be interacting with middle school students, they made the IRB and CITI Certification a priority to complete. As of February 28, 2011, all the members of Velocero were CITI Certified. This past week the team was focused on working diligently to complete their IRB for initial submission. Velocero met with Dr. Helen Kang for advice on how to complete the IRB on March 9, 2011. Dr. Kang dealt with a similar IRB situation as she was going through her Masters at Purdue University. March 10, 2011 the Velocero Team completed their initial IRB and had it reviewed on March 11, 2011 by Professor Terry Burton and a Purdue IRB Office consultant named Amy Carlson. The initial submission to the Purdue IRB Office was accepted on March 11, 2011.

Motivation to complete the IRB lead to a well defined methodology that Velocero plans to use to produce saturated research for their project. Before Velocero can acquire results they have to complete their methodology. The methodology being used has to have 80 students participate for an accurate recording of results. Professor Terry Burton confirmed this with the team during Go/No Go on March 2, 2011. Knowing that they must have 80 students participate in their research, Dr. Kang graciously offered Velocero the possibility to work at Tecumseh Middle School in Lafayette, IN (they will be meeting with Principal Gruetzmacher of Tecumseh on March 22, 2011). On March 7, 2011 the team was notified by Dr. John Layton - Director of Personnel at Lafayette School Corporation, for acceptance. He accepted Velocero's survey instrument materials to be used at Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School. With Tecumseh Middle School and Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School, Velocero hopes to have enough students participate. Once 80 students can be acquired through parent and student consent forms, the process of Velocero's methodology will be conducted in this manor:

1. Pre-test survey that will test the student's computer awareness.

2. Create a Control Group of 10 students who conduct the experiment using only the physical glider model.

3. Create a Test Group One of 10 students who conduct the experiment using only the virtual simulation game.

4. Create a Test Group Two of 20 students who will conduct the experiment using both the physical glider model and the virtual simulation game. Test Group Two will be subdivided in half to form Test Group 2.1 and Test Group 2.2.

a. Test Group 2.1 will consist of 10 students who will conduct the physical glider model experiment first.

b. Test Group 2.2 will consist of 10 students who will conduct the virtual simulation game experiment first.

5. Once all the data is collected through observation, a post-test survey will be handed out to students to complete.

To receive expertly calculated saturated research through the results collected, the team is in the process of completing the Statistic Consulting Form. It will be submitted for acceptance on March 21, 2011.

The desire to help disadvantaged students at Tecumseh and Lafayette Sunnyside middle schools has been a common goal among the Velocero Team. To achieve this common goal, Velocero has devoted their extra time in sponsoring a school supplies drive. This event will start on March 21, 2011 and end May 6, 2011. If you are interested in contributing educational supplies to enrich these disadvantaged students' education, please drop them off in front of the 3rd floor CGT main office (look for the Velecero donation bin) starting March 21, 2011. To prepare for the school supplies drive, Velocero has created a flier (created on March 10, 2011) that they will advertise to the local community to gain support for this event.

With Velocero's methodology solidified and the middle school supplies drive underway, they were able to develop the AWIM Glider Challenge simulation game further. Members of the team met on March 8, 2011 and March 10, 2011 for Professor Whittinghill's Unity3D course to work on completing the simulation game. Professor Whittinghill and his graduate student Jacob volunteered their valuable time to discuss and assist Velocero in programming an introduction GUI interface and virtually lighting the AWIM Glider Challenge environment professionally.

Additional dates and events that have been quite beneficial to the Velocero Team are below:

February 2, 2011 - Velocero signed up for the Undergraduate Poster Symposium on April 12, 2011 and submitted their abstract for acceptance. They are in the process of waiting for confirmation to join this event.

March 4, 2011 - All members of Velocero had their resumes reviewed by working professionals in their desired career area.

March 7, 2011 - Stock release #1: 10,000 Velocero shares at 9.20 per share were released to CGT 411. Velocero stocks were sold out by the end of the day.

March 8, 2011 - Stock release #2: another 10,000 Velocero shares were added to the company at 14.50 per share (Totaling 20,000 Velocero shares). Again, Velocero stocks were sold out by the end of the day.

March 10, 2011 - A Velocero Team member met with Principal Greg Louk of Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School. At this meeting, Velocero found out what their next steps will be. Principal Louk was asked to send Velocero a list of after school programs (where Velocero will recruit their targeted audience) and days the Velocero Team can come visit Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School. The team is currently awaiting these requests.

March 11, 2011 - Press release #2 was published on for up-to-date information.

Please refer to Velocero's previous press release to catch up on important information that the team has done since January in CGT 411. Some of the main points in their previous press release are: Receiving the Student Service Learning Grant (worth $1,000.00) on February 23, 2011, the official "GO!" from GO/NO GO on March 2, 2011, and Lafayette Sunnyside Middle School's support for their project research on March 3, 2011.

The success that Velocero has experienced so far is a representation of what is yet to come in their near future.
