Girl Scout Day at Mizzou Engineering inspires creativity in STEM
Give a girl a building block, she'll play for a day. Teach her how to design a building out of toothpicks and marshmallows, and she'll think about how she can build the future. Mizzou’s Society of Women Engineers (SWE) hosted Girl Scout Day, an event for local girl scouts to learn about engineering.
Researcher studying supercritical carbon dioxide for efficient applications
Chanwoo Park recently received funding from the U.S. Army to apply supercritical CO2 for cooling systems for unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) that take advantage of CO2 in an abnormal state somewhere between a vapor and a liquid.
Osaze earns 3MT People’s Choice Award for turning tricky plastic into insulation
A PhD student has discovered a way to turn unrecyclable plastic into building insulation that is 150% more effective than its untampered state on the market. For his research, Osasu Osaze earned the People’s Choice Award at this year’s 3MT competition sponsored by the University of Missouri Graduate School.
