Every year the STEM showcase allows students to present their research towards the community and area students. On Saturday, April 25, 2015, students flooded Moser Hall with 61 projects that they have been focusing on all semester. Projects included the Baja Car, the Concrete Canoe and also the Chem E-Car.
For the second year consecutively, the STEM College gave out two scholarships to incoming freshmen.
Along with seeing most of the student’s projects, the area was invited to take around the X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy labs. All things considered tours were complete and toward the end of the time, Dean Sturrus and President Tressel gave remarks and inducted sign ups in the STEM Leadership Society.
As usual, the many projects were fantastic, and YSU STEM is happy with the procedure our students have accomplished.
Some standout projects included the right bartending robot and also a football helmet that detects and analyzes concussions.
The personal bartending robot, called JuiceBox, was made by students, Jordan Brown, Corey Dunbar and Nick Getsy. In addition to the robot, they coded an Android app running the Arduino. The attention in this robot is usually to promote drinking at your house, in lieu of in the bar where driving home can be required. JuiceBox is made of an Arduino Mega microcontroller, a Bluetooth adapter, a stepper motor, a linear actuator and solenoid valves.
Another project that separated itself was the Smart Helmet. The Smart Helmet was developed by students Fahad Alotaibi, Chad Piccirilli and Paul Weidle. A sensor chip inside the helmet would relay data here we are at a monitor within the sidelines of your field for you to allow coaches to detect potential hazards immediately. Of course this technologies are already used in the professional league and colleges, students designed this helmet for being less expensive and reliable for top school use.
YSU STEM couldn’t be prouder of our students as well as the procedure they’ve finished this semester!
