> Dear Fred, Jeffrey,
> I’m writing to call your and your students’ attention to an IPRO offered in Spring 18 by my colleagues, Jeff Terry and Tom Roberts: https://ipro.iit.edu/course/497-219-sp18/ <https://ipro.iit.edu/course/497-219-sp18/>. It sounds like a very “physics-y” topic, but there's actually quite a bit of mathematical work required! It’s a precision gravity experiment designed and built by our collaborators at Harvard-Smithsonian that could be the world’s best if the measurement and feedback systems can be debugged and improved. Might you be able to encourage a few students in your department to take an interest in it?
> Thanks much,
