CSforAll, a national summit dedicated to expanding computer science courses for all students, took place at Washington University Oct 16-17. The event brought in about 300 teachers and administrators from school districts across Missouri and Southern Illinois.
Xuan “Silvia” Zhang and Christopher Gill, both faculty in the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in St. Louis, received a four-year, $936,504 grant from the National Science Foundation to study how to orchestrate modular power in a modular manner at the mesoscale, an area that has not yet been studied.
In the body, cells move around to form organs during development; to heal wounds; and when they metastasize from cancerous tumors. A mechanical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis found that cells remember the properties they had in their first environment for several days after they move to another in a process called mechanical memory.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently awarded a team of researchers at Washington University in St. Louis a five-year, $1.6 million grant to develop a combined treatment option using drug treatment and physical therapy to better restore range of motion following injury.
Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” (1818) is one of the most influential artistic creations of the last two centuries. On Sunday, Oct. 29, the Washington University Symphony Orchestra will present three world premiere student compositions, inspired by Shelley’s book, in the E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall.
Two engineers at Washington University in St. Louis are combining their expertise in studying brain networks to determine whether there are rules that determine how sensory stimuli, including touch, smell, sound, sight or taste, get mapped on the brain onto behavioral response.
Seven of Washington University in St. Louis’ recent alumni and one current student were selected by the Fulbright U.S. Student Program to conduct research or teach English this academic year.
Over the past two years, Washington University students have worked with industry partners to design, fabricate and now finally construct CRETE House as part of Solar Decathlon 2017.
We asked three members of the Class of 2021, including Astrella Sjarfi, to record one second of video every day for their first 40 or so days of college. Learn more about Sjarfi and her two fellow students as they navigated these first unforgettable days on the Danforth Campus.
As devastating wildfires rage in California wine country, a team of environmental engineers at Washington University in St. Louis have made a new discovery about wildfire smoke, and its effect on the atmosphere.
