When computer scientist Jeanie Schwenk suffered a traumatic car accident, she didn't expect to discover a new career path. Her new company, Magno Processing Systems, will use visual imaging software to help individuals with traumatic brain injuries.
The Exchange gained special access to the Google fortress for a one night event entitled Google Stories.
Ileane Smith's insight:
The Science & Entertainment Exchange is a program of the National Academy of Sciences that connects entertainment industry professionals with top scientists and engineers to create a synergy between accurate science and engaging storylines in both film and TV programming
As biomechatronic technology has matured over the past 50 years, exoskeletons have emerged as leading tools for augmenting able-bodied performance, assisting human mobility and restoring lost limb function. These systems are anthropomorphic, structural devices that work in conjunction with the body’s natural architecture to aid limb mobility. Exploiting biomimetic design, such devices may be worn in close proximity to the body and transmit torques via powered revolute joints and structural limbs.
Ileane Smith's insight:
Titan Arm was designed and manufactured by teammates Elizabeth Beattie, Nicholas McGill, Nick Parrotta and Nikolay Vladimirov as seniors at the University of Pennsylvania. Beattie majored in mechanical engineering, and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. McGill double-majored in electrical and mechanical engineering, and is pursuing his MSE in robotics. Parrotta majored — and is now pursuing an MSE — in mechanical engineering. Vladimirov, a mechanical engineering major, now works at IDEO, a global design consultancy.

Young British engineer Sam Etherington worked out the design for his award-winning wave energy system while kite surfing. That inspiration may catapult him into the “SEMPA” British Engineering Hall of Fame.
The ability to mathematically model complex systems has become a prerequisite to successful science in any field. Writing a simulation is not enough; career scientists today should be able to analyze results, recognize statistical regularities, formulate conjectures, and pursue possible proofs about why these conjectures are true. This hands-on summer program will give you a toolbox for understanding and using mathematical modeling in complex systems and your discipline
The important role science, technology, engineering and mathematics education has in catalyzing state economies and workforce readiness is generally recognized and certainly well documented. However, a critical piece of this message has gone missing: K-12 STEM education itself is overdue for a rethink.
Skills now necessary in manufacturing and the professions, new technical roles, high-tech product demands and new manufacturing technologies call for new STEM-based learning outcomes, increased STEM subject integration and diverse uses of technology that are largely absent in most STEM school subjects.
A related concern is the well-documented gap between how school STEM is learned and how STEM workers carry out their work in the everyday realities of their jobs.
Students may be graduating with the requisite clumps of subject knowledge mastered and formulas committed to memory, yet have little insight into how science, technology, engineering and mathematics come together to advance our quality of life, economic livelihood, responses to climate disruptions.
What exactly can be done to close this gap, to align school STEM and STEM in the workforce?
REME vehicle mechanic Corporal Lisah Brooking has been presented award for her outstanding contribution to the Bloodhound supersonnic car project...“I have learned so much about engineering here at Bloodhound SSC and been mentored by the best in the business – it’s a real honour to be recognised for what the skills I have got from the REME,” said Lisah. “I have no doubt that the knowledge I’ve gained from working on the Bloodhound project will help me on Operations and I’ll make sure that others get the benefit too and share it with those more junior to me."
