Between June and September 2021, CROSS fellows and collaborators mentored nine summer students -- five through the Google Summer of Code, three through the Open Source Research Experience program, and one supported through the Fellowship for Anti-Racism Research.

Students began this process by looking at the CROSS Project Ideas Catalog and reaching out to the relevant mentor(s) to help them construct their project proposal. They have worked closely with their mentors to successfully complete their projects.

GSoC student finalized their work at the end of August. See links to project reports below:

Lastly, UC Santa Cruz PhD candidate Carlos Isaac Espinosa Ramirez is doing a joint project. The technical side of his project is entitled "Dynamic Model and Control Design of a Quadrotor using Simulink" and is part of the OSAVC project, with mentors Aaron Hunter and Pavlo Vlastos. This part is combined with research focusing on increasing diversity and inclusion in open source projects, with a particular focus on open source autonomous vehicle communities. This part of Carlos's work is being mentored by CROSS Assistant Director Stephanie Lieggi.

All students will be highlighted at the CROSS Research Symposium in October.
