Women of K-State will feature K-State alumna Sarah Lamm for a Lunch and Learn at noon Thursday, March 28, in the Flint Hills Room at the K-State Student Union. Please feel free to bring your lunch. Cookies and lemonade will be provided.

Lamm will talk about how K-State prepared her to work on the Mars Curiosity Rover. While at K-State, Lamm triple majored in chemistry, geology and geography. She had her first internship at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2016, working on the ChemCam instrument on Curiosity. Lamm returned to Los Alamos the following two summers before starting graduate school.

Lamm is still working with Curiosity at Northern Arizona University where she is pursuing a doctorate planetary science.
