As enrollment at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences continues to grow, many remain concerned about the school’s persistent gender gap.
Mary Carmack '16, left, and Ali Forelli '16 ,right, present their ES52 project, "The Clap 'n Snap," which allows users to clap within a one meter radius of the camera, causing it to turn towards them and take their picture.
Members of the Harvard community gathered Tuesday to display the products of their scientific ingenuity at the third annual School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Design and Project Fair.
It might be time to take a closer glance at the nearest landline phone cord. Harvard researchers recently discovered a new shape—the hemihelix—which can be found in helical-like structures such as phone cords or slinkies. Shapes like the hemihelix might shed light on the process of creating three dimensional shapes from two dimensional starting materials, researchers said.
Members of the “Church of Stop Shopping in NYC” led a protest against the project Robobees, which aimed to design robotic bees. Protestors felt the project was a “non-response” to the current decline in bee populations.
Members of the activist group known as the Church of Stop Shopping protested a research project focused on creating and studying insect-like robots on Tuesday.
Dean of Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Cherry A. Murray, pictured above in 2011, has joined the Newport Corporation Board of Directors.
Cherry Murray, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, joined the board of directors for Newport Corporation last week, a technology company that specializes in providing hardware for photonics and optics research.
Three student projects won $10,000 grants in the seventh iteration of the I3 Harvard College Innovation Challenge.
Allston residents have voiced concerns about the makeup of the Harvard-Allston Task Force, particularly concerning the age, gender, and race of its members.
The evolution of virtual communication has been short but significant. Initially, text messages were just that, text. Then, emoticons were integrated (:D). These days, we can communicate with photos, videos, voice memos, and emojis—you never have to actually type again! Now, thanks to Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences professor David Edwards, a completely necessary new way to communicate is available, the smext.
Though typically associated with the destruction of structures, termite colonies may have just inspired the next big innovation in construction. A team of engineers and computer scientists at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering built a “colony” of autonomous, interchangeable robots—coined the TERMES project—based on the construction strategies of termites and other insect species, according to a report published in Science earlier this month.
Scientists at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have moved one step closer to successfully printing three-dimensional, fully-functional tissues.
The vision, laid out in a Jan. 20 draft report by the SEAS Teaching and Community Space Task Force obtained by The Crimson, calls specifically for the creation of classroom spaces that will allow for “active learning” and the incorporation of recreational areas.
