Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society, inducted 20 new members into the Rhode Island Alpha chapter at Brown University on Friday, December 5. Thirteen juniors were inducted along with seven seniors.
Neuroscience research has been constrained by the cables required to connect brain sensors to computers for analysis. In the journal Neuron, scientists in a collaboration led by Brown University describe a wireless brain-sensing system to acquire high-fidelity neural data during animal behavior experiments.
The Brown University Society for Women Engineers (SWE) will be sponsoring its eighth annual "Extreme Gingerbread House Competition" on Friday, December 5, from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. in the lobby of the Barus and Holley building.
Lacrosse players swing hard, which is why errant stick blows are the leading cause of concussion in girls’ and women’s lacrosse. In a new study, researchers measured how much the worst blows accelerate the head and how much different kinds of headgear could reduce those accelerations.
Several Brown University engineering students attended the 2014 American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Annual Meeting in November in Atlanta. Six undergraduate engineering students and one graduate student returned to Providence with awards.
