Role models for future engineers
Beverly J. Martin (BJM) Elementary School is located in downtown Ithaca and is a vibrant, diverse community, with a wide range of learners and a cohort of students struggling to become more proficient in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Undergraduate senior project takes flight
Cornell Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering student, Anton Volkmann, has sealed his place in the rich history of walkalong gliding.
Notes from the NSF INCLUDES Summit
For the past 20+ years, the National Science Foundation has been funding initiatives aimed at broadening the participation of underrepresented populations though the Broader Impact efforts supported by the various research divisions.
Education program catalyzes identity in science
As part of a new integrated approach to outreach, education, and public engagement, CHESS has an exciting new initiative that achieves multiple broader impact objectives while simultaneously making our lab more inviting to visitors and partners.
A gem of an activity
The girl scouts, who were working on earning their Radio and Wireless Technology patches, spent their Saturday at Wilson Lab building their radios under the guidance and tutelage of the Cornell students.
X-ray Fluorescence Workshop for high school science teachers and educators
As part of Xraise’s initiative to provide high school teachers and educators with state of the art technology to use in their classroom, the outreach group has acquired two Bruker handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) devices for their Lending Library program.
SUNRiSE, a test program for combined home-institution faculty and local facility mentored summer research experiences for undergraduates
For many undergraduate students, the idea of spending the summer away from friends and family to work at a state-of-the-art synchrotron radiation facility under the supervision of a research scientist is an intimidating prospect.
Shedding new light on secondary science programs: A visit to Brookhaven National Laboratory
An eight-hour van ride to Long Island did not deter Xraise from participating in the May 2017 joint National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS-II) and Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) User Meeting at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
