Gavin Lommatsch

Originally from West Glacier Montana, I am a senior in Montana State University’s Electrical Engineering program. I’ve always enjoyed hands-on projects and have had an interest in the area where electrical and mechanical systems come together for quite some time. I became interested in optics and solar science while working in the ORSL lab at MSU, and when I found out about the NSSSC competition, I jumped on the opportunity to learn more about the fascinating field of spectroscopy. I enjoy being active and seldom turn down an opportunity to learn or try something new, as a result my interests are numerous and quite varied. Currently I’m active in competitive logger sports, swing dancing, a continuous stream of personal mechanical/electrical projects, and any outdoor activity I can find the time for.



Scott Miller

Scott is a sophomore in the Computer Engineering program at Montana State University. A native to Montana, Scott was raised in rural Creston, Montana on his parent’s sheep farm. From an early age he was interested in all aspects of technology from robotics to space travel. Scott has enjoyed working in MSU’s electronics and digital logic labs, and recently accepted a summer internship with Montana Space Grant Consortium’s BOREALIS lab. On the rare occasion that he has free time Scott enjoys flying remote control aircraft, mountain biking, kayaking, video and board gaming, target shooting and researching the latest technology developments.

Seth Wendt

Born and raised in Bozeman he graduated high school in 2009. A troublemaker of sorts not really knowing what was next. He decided to attend Montana State University since it was close to home and had his interest at the time, economics. After a semester of supply and demand he demanded a switch to electrical engineering, something more challenging and hands on. Once there, many different possibilities and opportunities arise and he is into his senior year in the program. Wendt is an avid outdoors-man which works well in Bozeman. He can ski and snowboard (skiing is more fun), play hockey, and snowshoe when snow and cold is readily available. Since the temperature is warming he will start longboarding, biking, hiking, and camping whenever he can take a break from summer school classes. He is enthusiastic and has put body and mind into engineering and is excited to see what's next!



Ryan Hammang

Ryan Hammang is in his third year of the Electrical Engineering program as a post-baccalaureate student. His previous education ranges from undergraduate work in the social sciences to graduate work in financial economics. Hailing from Algonac, Michigan, he has traveled and lived world-wide as a Fleet Marine Force Navy Corpsman. Ryan brings to his team broad professional experience as an industrial engineer for a very large scale Seattle-based aircraft manufacturer and several years as a volatility derivatives trader for a major banking company. He can usually be found listening to Detroit sports radio when he is not studying or trying to maintain some semblance of physical fitness.
