Picture this: A sensor the size of two matchsticks side-by-side that can detect a bacterial infection in two minutes flat. It would quickly enable health-care providers to administer an antibiotic that targets the specific bug rather than a broad-spectrum drug that could be hit-or-miss. That describes the mind-boggling research project that Daniel Ostberg, E’20, displayed in Innovation Alley at RISE:2016.
Today’s wind turbines are gargantuan structures that require high wind speeds to generate large amounts of energy for consumers. One group of engineering students presenting at RISE:2016—and featured at the […]
