Hosted by MU’s Neural Engineering Laboratory, the 13th annual Robotics Design Challenge welcomed 325 participating K-8th graders to test the robots they had spent months creating.
The University of Missouri is already doing groundbreaking work in pairing Big Data experts with clinical and life science practitioners in order to produce cutting-edge results out of the wealth of data the latter groups create with their research. And a group of College of Engineering researchers is looking to expand collaborative efforts even further.
Carly Garrow will work with Felix Nickel of Universität Heidelberg, whose research specializes in laparoscopic surgery, during a 10-month fellowship sponsored by the Whitaker International Program.
Adel Alturki of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department received a Teaching Assistant Choice Award from the Missouri Students Association (MSA).
Satish Nair, a University of Missouri professor of electrical and computer engineering, and three MU faculty collaborators submitted one of only three researcher training course proposals to receive funding from the National Institutes of Health BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) aimed at cross-training researchers in computational neuroscience. The course will provide training to pre- and post-docs, medical students, and junior faculty who are beginning or anticipating potential careers/collaborations in neuroscience.
Problem solving and communication were big aspects of the 10th Annual Robotics Design Challenge, also known as the LEGO Challenge, which took place in the auditorium of MU’s Engineering Building West on April 11. Around 145 elementary and middle-schoolers from across Missouri came to Columbia for the event.
The University of Missouri College of Engineering was well represented at the Spring 2014 Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievements Forum April 22.
This semester, as many as 180 children will participate in the Neuro-LEGO Robotics camps held at Mizzou. Since they began in 2006, more than 600 elementary and middle school students have participated in the camps. Satish Nair, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and biological engineering, heads up the program. Nair said James Thompson, […]
