Case Western Reserve University’s think[box] invention center recently welcomed its 90,000th visitor.
Taylor Barto, a third-year electrical engineering major at Cleveland State University, was visiting think[box] to work on an embedded systems project for class.
Think[box] opened its doors in Glennan Hall in 2011, giving the campus and regional community access to equipment and resources for turning ideas into inventions. In 2014, the university broke ground on the first phase of the expansion project that will move think[box] into its permanent home—a seven-story, 50,000-square-foot innovation hub.
More than 400 innovative ideas from the minds of students, faculty and staff at Case Western Reserve University are on display today at Research ShowCASE.
The annual event gives the campus community the opportunity to present its research and creative projects. It also gives the outside community the chance to see the broad and diverse work being done across the university.
Research ShowCASE will take place today, April 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center.
Check out the Plain Dealer’s coverage of the event.
The Center for Civic Engagement and Learning will recruit six undergraduate students to serve in full-time, paid summer internships through the 2015 Engineering Education Summer Outreach program, with support from the Leonard Gelfand STEM Center.
This nine-week summer program (June 1 to July 31) will expand access to engineering education by matching Case Western Reserve University undergraduate students with summer youth programs in the Greater Cleveland community. Case Western Reserve student interns will design and implement engineering classes with youth enrolled in the programs. Interns will also have the opportunity to build their civic awareness and leadership skills through regular seminars.
Researchers at the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University, directed by professor of biomedical engineering Anant Madabhushi, recently won three awards to support imaging research.
The awards include a Department of Defense Idea grant, VeloSano Pilot grant and a Cancer Center pilot grant to support research efforts to improve the diagnosis and treatment of prostate, lung and breast cancers.
Case Western Reserve University engineers are making sensors that can be integrated into existing materials, transforming today’s homes and commercial buildings into energy-saving, tech-savvy “smart buildings.”
Their work is funded by a $750,000 “incubator” award from the U.S. Department of Energy.
A smart building is one equipped with lighting, heating and electronic devices that can be controlled remotely by phone or computer.
