APS News Survey: We Have a Winner

The APS News iPad raffle winner is a lucky physics major with a love for cars

APS News Survey Winner

Lucas Wilkins

At the 2017 APS March Meeting in New Orleans, APS News asked attendees to fill out a brief survey for a chance to win an Apple iPad. The survey asked readers to tell us what sections of the publication they found most useful.

The winner of the iPad raffle is APS member Lucas Wilkins of New Oxford, Pennsylvania. Lucas just finished up his sophomore year at Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA, where he is a physics major. This summer he is participating in the NSF-REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program in condensed matter physics at the University of Florida. "My hobby is working on cars," he says. "My biggest project is a 1984 Jeep CJ7 that I bought at 12 years old and did a complete restoration and upgrade. Other projects include a Mazda Miata and an MG Midget."

In general, those responding to the questionnaire wanted to see more news about research, more international news, and more history of physics. Readers are invited to send comments about what APS News should cover to apsnews@aps.org. — The Editor
