With each issue, ASEE’s Accelerator brings you new scholarship and/or internship/co-op opportunities for engineering students. Would you like to list an opportunity with us? Please email email@example.com. Continue reading Internships & Funding
MIT engineers have created soft, magnetically-manipulable 3D printed structures. These objects have multiple polarities and can bend, deform, and even crawl on command! Read more about them here.
Researchers at TU Delft have come up with a nimble, gossamer-winged robot that mimics how insects move. It can make rapid maneuvers in every direction and accelerate–on the fly. Read more about it here.
Destin at Smarter Every Day holds lightning in his hands as he plays with Tesla coils in different iterations.
The NASA Student Launch is an annual competition that challenges student teams from middle school through graduate school to propose, design, build and test a reusable rocket that flies to 1 mile in altitude, deploys a recovery system and returns safely to the ground, while carrying a payload of scientific or engineering value. “The Vanderbilt Aerospace Design Lab team from Vanderbilt University claims top honors. Vanderbilt’s first-place finish is the team’s fourth win in the last five years.” Read more here.
(Note: If you’re interested in participating, the 2019 Student Launch Handbook will be available in late August 2018.)
