Student Sylvia Herbert went to a local public high school, Lower Merion High School, to present on engineering, college, and being a female in STEM. She spoke with several classes totaling to 100+ students in college prep, honors, and AP physics. Below is a picture from one of these classes
Congrats to Ben Pelleg for passing his PhD Proposal today!
Students Sylvia Herbert and Jamie Kennedy gave presentations and demos today to highly motivated middle and high school students at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Science and Engineering Day at Drexel. Below are some highlights from the event.
Today Dr. Fontecchio presented and sat on a panel for Philadelphia Science Festival's Big Ideas Fund Event. The description of the event is below:
What role does the government play in advancing innovation? How are projects chosen to receive funding? Moderated by one former and one current director of the National Science Foundation, this program will feature researchers who’ve generated some of the most well-known scientific breakthroughs of our time and the role that federal funds continue to play in furthering innovation.
MS Student Sylvia Herbert presented her poster at the Smart Fabrics Conference today in San Francisco, CA in conjunction with our ongoing research on wearable technologies with the ExCITe Center. The poster is "The Creation of a Deformation Sensor Using “Smart” Fabrics: Applications to In Vivo Monitoring of Pregnant Women"
Today Drexel Engineering hosted the Dean’s Lecture Series in Mitchell Auditorium with Dr. Fontecchio. Dr. Fontecchio's talk was "STEM to STEAM: Broadening Drexel's Educational and Research Initiatives Through the ExCITe Center." This presentation focused on the origin and mission of Drexel’s ExCITe Center - a hub for enabling teams of faculty, students and entrepreneurs to pursue highly multi-disciplinary collaborative projects in engineering, fashion design, digital media, performing arts, computer and information science, product design and many other fields. This presentation will soon be available for download.
