Posted on Oct. 30, 2018
Thanks in part to one Riverdale graduate, future American soldiers will be better protected in combat by stronger and lighter body armor.
Joshua Pelz, Riverdale class of 2013, is now a materials science and engineering doctoral candidate at the University of California San Diego. This summer, he worked alongside other materials science engineers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, on innovative work that uses nature as the inspiration for breakthroughs in additive manufacturing.
