For one week every summer, east-central Wisconsin becomes the site of the greatest spectacle in aviation. EAA’s Air Venture in Oshkosh draws a half-million people from all over the world – including aviation fans and aeronautics businesses from Indiana.
The Purdue College of Technology in New Albany hosted students from the local YMCA summer camp this week, and southern Indiana's News and Tribune followed them on their tour.
The publication published photos of the students during demonstrations of robotics and a laser machine. View the photos and brief write-up on the News and Tribune web site.
The Purdue College of Technology in New Albany and the YMCA of Southern Indiana have begun a partnership to incorporate STEM subjects into summer programs and other youth programs.
Andrew Takami, director of the Purdue location off Charlestown Road, said while he’s trying to give the college more exposure in the community, he’s also trying to find ways to meet the needs of other organizations in the area.
Linda Naimi, associate professor of technology leadership and innovation, has been elected International Leadership Council vice president for the Golden Key International Honour Society. In this role, Naimi will chair the council and the Golden Key Council of Advisors.
Teachers from four Indiana middle schools will be trained this month to get their students TECHFIT.
The National Science Foundation-funded program, led by College of Technology professors from Purdue University, combines technology lessons with fitness activities.
Purdue's expertise in metrology (the science of measurement) and fabrication are highlighted in the July 2014 edition of The Business Connection, a publication of the Columbus (IN) Republic.
Professors from Purdue's College of Technology at Columbus and their research are featured as part of a larger story about the city's three-year-old Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence.
The story describes the center as "a minds- and hands-on experience for students and researchers."
Eric Matson, associate professor of computer and information technology, talked with EdTech Magazine about the Internet of Things and how it relates to current college students.
He discussed the need for standards for machine-to-machine communication as the internet of things continues to grow.
A new wave of robotic technology is changing society and in the process, hopefully helping to improve the U.S. economy.
At Purdue University, researchers are experimenting with robots to assist in the operating room, and with manufacturing and firefighting.
Pendleton Heights junior Brandon Boynton is receiving national attention for a mobile application designed to stop bullying.
Boynton created The Bully Box while in the Madison County Chamber’s Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) program.
This was the first year for the YEA! program, through the chamber and Purdue University College of Technology in Anderson, and officials say they are pleased with the program’s success.
A group of Purdue students figured out a way to shorten the amount of time race fans will wait at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway entrance gates on race day.
The new process will get crowds through the gates and into the grandstands 25 seconds faster.
It doesn’t seem like much, but that time adds up. Eric Dietz, the director at the Purdue Homeland Security Institute and professor of computer and information technology, said taking saving 25 seconds on more than 100,000 people will save security personnel 2,000 man hours.
