The 2nd year Graduate Students will present their research thus far at the Research Review on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 in both 102 Colburn & 114 Spencer Labs from 9:00 am to ~4:00 pm. The Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Research Review is for fellow students & faculty.
April Kloxin thinks science rocks, and she wants everyone from grade-schoolers to grandparents to think that too. So her research group at the University of Delaware is reaching out to the public through an interactive kiosk at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, as well as through a radio show on the University’s student-run radio station, WVUD.
Termites strike terror into the hearts of homeowners, but they could provide a nonpolluting way to convert coal to methane if microbes from their gut can be sent below ground as tiny miners. This novel concept was presented at the University of Delaware Energy Institute annual symposium at the Clayton Hall Conference Center on May 13. The event attracted more than 50 people from the energy community to address the clean energy challenge.
When Richard Haines graduated from the University of Delaware in 1957 with a degree in chemical engineering, the number of women graduates in engineering could literally be counted on one hand. Today, one out of every four engineering undergraduates at UD is a woman, but Haines knew that a large, permanent base of dollars could help nudge the percentage upward. So in 2013, he and his wife, Janet, gave a $300,000 gift to the College of Engineering to help advance women in engineering.
