Intuition, Freeskier Feature SBA Artistry

The photographic and skiing artistry of SBA student-athletes Skyler Mullings ('16) and Drew Hartley ('13) were featured recently in Freeskier magazine.

Mullings photographed Hartley airborne near Rainbow Bridge, and Hartley's sponsor Intuition liked the photo so much it ended up on a full-page advertisement for the boot liners in Freeskier

Thanks to Skyler Mullings for the following comments about his passion for his artistic pursuits...

"Videography and photography are both great ways to capture a great moment. It's easy to go out there, purchase a camera, and start snapping photos, but the way that you capture that moment and display it to your viewers is the creative aspect of it. My goal is that everything I release has a creative aspect to it and can't be duplicated by someone else out there. I'd like my work to be different, unique. In this case, though, the athlete is the one with the creativity. A big thanks to Drew Hartley's sponsor, Intuition, and to Drew himself for arranging this photo to be used as an ad!" - Skyler Mullings ('16)

Mind, Body, Science!

Earlier this month, SBA student-athlete Lauren Dunn ('14) traveled to Placer County's STEM Expo (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - click HERE to learn more) to present her findings from a long-term science project born on our campus. Thank you to marmot dad Brian Dunn for supplying the following synopsis of Lauren's project...
"This year, Lauren chose to do a science fair project for her elective class. Steve Ascher agreed to mentor her. The topic of her project was Color Vision and Aging. The objective of the project was to determine if a person’s color vision was affected by the aging process. Lauren conducted extensive literature research on the topic and then developed an experimental protocol. She built a device that allowed her to determine a person’s ability to see colors in the visible light spectrum and into both the infrared and ultraviolet ranges. The experiment also determined a person’s ability to distinguish between colors that were close in wavelength. The project was a success and she’s looking forward to her next project. She is considering using an unmanned aerial vehicle for a classified project!!"
