My least favorite thing is the continued perception that more women don’t want to be in STEM – that they’re choosing to not go into STEM...
Try explaining STEM to students and you probably get blank stares, eye rolls or even yawns. Sure...
A company called Vortex Bladeless utilizes a different aspect of wind power called vortices....
Here at ECN we love to see companies getting involved in the STEM (or STEAM) cause.
Innovation is a word that gets thrown around at a lot of companies, but nobody understand more about innovation than Mike Rainone, founder and chief innovation officer at PCDworks, Inc. And, according to him, all those companies tossing out ideas about how to innovate? They’re doing it wrong.
Lightfair 2015, which took the event back to its home at the Javits Center in NYC, was all about the smart systems and integrated lighting solutions.
Google's new headquarters in beautiful Mountain View, California, may take longer than expected, but is in no part due to the robot-crane hybrids they'll be using to assist in building.
Most of the time, my job is just like any other job. I have day-to-day responsibilities like debating topics with commenters, writing blogs about things that annoy the commenters, and then writing up blogs about the terrible things commenters sometimes say.
Quantum dots are the most important technological development that no one has heard of. At least not when compared to the buzz about 4K, curved displays, the Internet of Things, or other Consumer Electronic Show (CES) titans.
The STEM student of the week feature is one of my favorite things to do. It's pretty amazing to read about what some kids (and young adults) are working on.
While NASA experiments with tiltrotor drones capable of switching from aircraft to helicopter mid-air, it’s also testing a shape-changing wing that could save millions in fuel costs and improve the passenger experience. NASA has partnered with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Ann Arbor-based FlexSys ...
Say what you will about STEM education, but no one wants the be the "only" in a class. You don't want to be the only senior in a sea of freshman or the only boy in a group of girls or, in this case, the only girl in an engineering class.
The 1960s was arguably the most fascinating time in the world of space. Sputnik had been launched just a few years prior and the entire decade ended with the first moon landing. So what happened?
The House officially introduced a version of the annual defense budget that would save the A-10 Thunderbolt II. And this little proxy war is a perfect illustration of the ugly politics behind the F-35 and, really, defense programs in general....
You might remember the X-47B unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) demonstrator as the first drone to execute a carrier landing. And now this semi-autonomous jet-powered craft has hit another milestone – the first Autonomous Aerial Refueling (AAR) operation.
Growing up, my family had a huge fish tank in our office that I would sit in front of for hours like it was a television set.
First of all, let's wish a happy 25th birthday to the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, which will reach a quarter century of providing incredible information and pictures on Friday, April 24th.
Will self-driving vehicles lead to increased automotive safety? Probably. Will they have run up against entrenched cultural attitudes and a fear of change? Maybe. But will they cost more? Almost certainly. Got an extra 10 grand lying around?
Our Canadian brethren take a lot of flack for their peacekeeping and polite stereotypes, but that doesn't mean they're not developing the weapons of the future.
The Blue Angels are generally regarded as some of the most talented and esteemed pilots in the world.
Researchers at Purdue University have discovered a way to transform those scrunchy little pieces of styrofoam into an energy efficient battery. Turns out that the very qualities that make them a stout companion for your fragile parcels – their lightweight, porous nature ...
Meet Paul Jerome Barina, a student at Ohio University working on a Masters of Science in Industrial & Systems Engineering.
The F-35’s critics have denounced the Joint Strike Fighter for years, but this is one of the first concessions from a high-level government official that this flying Swiss Army Knife won’t live up to its lofty billing. The F-35’s battlefield capabilities won’t surpass the A-10....
While the Navy ponders whether to replace the Tomahawk missile or just update it, Raytheon is preparing a multi-mode seeker test that could allow the Tomahawk Block IV to hit moving targets. The captive flight test would utilize a modified Tomahawk Block IV missile nose cone....
Not content with merely blocking their own citizens’ unfettered internet access, China has gone to the source, targeting the websites and servers which attempt to circumvent the infamous “Great Firewall of China.” Researchers have dubbed this new attack infrastructure the “Great Cannon”....
Giant spiders in space may sound like the beginning of an epic sci-fi horror book, but the real purpose of these nightmare-come-to-life is a little less sinister.
Meet Jasen Massey. He has a B.S in Physics from Illinois State University and is working on an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His main area of focus is fluids/heat transfer and robotics.
Those prone to car sickness usually prefer to drive. That’s because getting behind the wheel lessens the symptoms you feel as a passenger. But what happens when everyone’s a passenger? What happens to the occupants of self-driving cars?
