Broncos Standout As STEM Majors
June 7, 2016

BOISE, Idaho - Back in October 2015, Boise State announced a $25 million gift from the Micron Foundation, the largest gift in the university's history. The gift funded a new Center for Materials Research run by the College of Engineering, set for construction on University Drive just west of where the Engineering Building currently stands.

It is one of the highlights of Boise State University's commitment to the growth and development of its materials science and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs.

Contributing to this continued growth in the STEM fields are two Boise State student-athletes, senior gymnast Maddie Krentz and junior swimmer Emily Tanasse. Both mechanical engineering majors, Krentz and Tanasse have balanced their successful athletic careers as part of conference-champion programs with hands-on work in the engineering labs at Boise State.

In the video above, Krentz and Tanasse share their academic pursuits in the STEM field as well as the assistance provided by the Bronco Athletic Association to their athletic and academic journeys.
