Baja Team races off-roading car in four-day international competition

Earlier this month, eight members of the Case Western Reserve University Baja Team packed up their trailer and drove south to Auburn, Ala., to compete in an international competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers.
 
Every year since 2001, students on the Baja Team have designed, manufactured and raced a custom off-roading vehicle. Using a variety of manual machines, computer numerical control (CNC) milling machines, rapid prototyping and support from local companies, the team was able to construct a high-performing vehicle for this competition season.

Researchers create first metal-free catalyst for rechargeable zinc-air batteries

Researchers from Case Western Reserve University and the University of North Texas have made what they believe is the first metal-free bifunctional electrocatalyst that performs as well or better than most metal and metal oxide electrodes in zinc-air batteries.
 
Zinc-air batteries are expected to be safer, lighter, cheaper, and more powerful and durable than lithium-ion batteries common in mobile phones and laptops and increasingly used in hybrid and electric cars.

Anthropology, engineering students work together to solve global health problems

During spring break, Case Western Reserve University students and faculty traveled to Uganda to work with Ugandan colleagues in the social sciences and engineering on two global health projects. The project is part of an initiative linking Case Western Reserve students with biomedical engineering students at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
 
Led by Andrew Rollins, professor of biomedical engineering, and Janet McGrath, professor of anthropology, the initiative, an offshoot of the Uganda-Case Western Reserve University Research Collaboration that began in 1988, brings medical anthropology and engineering students and faculty together to address global health problems.
