Different Kinds of Scholarships for Women in Science and Engineering - Financial Aid Information

With the ever rising cost of education these days, it is then no wonder that a lot of people try to find ways to get their higher education for free. Women, in particular, are rather lucky in this regard since there are quite a few different scholarships that can be had for women who wish to pursue certain degrees in many different fields.

The place where dead airplanes come back to life

The place where dead airplanes come back to life | Engineering and Aerospace | Scoop.it

Tarbes, France (CNN) -- Wings clipped, noses cut off, stripped down to the bone, these old birds will never fly again. But the giant hangar at the home of Tarmac Aerosave is not a graveyard for planes -- it's a recycling yard.
Tarmac Aerosave has been dismantling disused aircraft at its base in "Aerospace Valley" -- a cluster of French flight engineering firms near the town of Tarbes in southern France -- since it was formed in 2009. Although the company's primary business remains aircraft storage, it has stripped 12 planes completely since its inception

"The percentage of the aircraft to be recycled is around 87% (and) actually we expect to rise that to 90%" says Medan.

Will Airplanes Powered By Bacteria Ever Take Off? | Endless Innovation | Big Think

Will Airplanes Powered By Bacteria Ever Take Off? | Endless Innovation | Big Think | Engineering and Aerospace | Scoop.it

This has been a big week for the U.S. domestic airline industry and its embrace of environmentally-friendly biofuels. On Monday, a United Airlines jet completed the first-ever biofuel-powered commercial flight in the U.S. On Wednesday, Alaska Airlines is launching the first of 75 flights powered by a 20% biofuel blend concocted from recycled cooking oil. The problem is that the cost of these biofuels is so prohibitively expensive -- nearly six times the cost of regular jet fuel -– that there are no concrete plans to continue these experiments. But what if there were a way to generate cheap bioefuels for the airline transportation industry via synthetic biology, essentially re-engineering E. coli bacteria so that they become a source of cheap, sustainable fuel?

The Washboard

I've begun using "The Washboard" to begin looking at scholarships for college. Because it is only for students in Washington State, I am able to find a lot of local scholarships to apply for.

Mary Charleson's curator insight, May 8, 2014 10:49 PM

Washboard has been a great website to find scholarships! Washboard finds scholarships that are personalized to the student's qualifications and interests! I have found this site to be very useful. When I began my CE Project, I was overwhelmed and did not know how to find scholarships that I qualified for. By creating a Washboard account, I found hundreds of scholarships. I plan to apply for a scholarship from BgScholarship.com, which seeks to provide assistance to high school students who hope to continue to four year universities. Many of the scholarship  deadlines were due in the beginning of the year, so my selection is somewhat limited. However, Washboard has given me a good start in reaching my scholarship goals.

NASA: Airplane passengers can count on Safer Flights and More Reliable with NASA Cloud Modeling

NASA: Airplane passengers can count on Safer Flights and More Reliable with NASA Cloud Modeling | Engineering and Aerospace | Scoop.it
Airplane passengers can count on their flights being safer and more reliable across North America now that scientists have begun using data determined with NASA formulas to get a more accurate representation of clouds in weather forecast models.

 

"Clouds are an important factor to consider when planning a flight," says Patrick Minnis, a scientist at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. whose team provided the enhanced cloud information to weather models. "They are associated with severe storms, aircraft icing, turbulence, lightning and other aviation hazards."

 

Minnis' team, the Langley Cloud and Radiation Group, works on developing ways to represent cloud information collected for NASA's satellite project, Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES). The team adapted those CERES procedures to apply them to data being collected from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES).

 

The result of the fusion is new and improved cloud information, which is now being fed into forecasts produced by NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS) in near-real time – every hour.

Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering

Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering | Engineering and Aerospace | Scoop.it

A consortium led by Australia’s LAVA has won an international competition to design a national stadium and sports village in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Its concept blends traditional Ethiopian architectural and construction practices with new technology to create a modern piece of infrastructure.

The team was selected by Ethiopia's Federal Sport Commission (FSC), which wants to replace the current 25,000-seat national stadium with a 60,000-seat stadium and related sports facilities. FSC wants to begin construction in 2014.

Traditional Ethiopian architecture includes examples of excavated historical structures, including ancient rock churches as well as dwellings and cisterns. The team's concept, which includes a sunken arena surrounded by grandstands formed from excavated material, captures elements of those traditional treatments in the stadium’s design...

Robots in Aerospace Applications | Engineering and Aerospace | Scoop.it

The role of robotics in the manufacture of aerospace products is important although not as pervasive as in the automotive industry. While robotics play an important function in the fabrication of aircraft engines, aerospace companies are increasingly investing in robots to perform drilling, painting and other tasks on airframes.
