  • STEM Summer Camp

    July 24, 2017 through July 28, 2017

    This summer Drexel University is engaged in broader impacts outreach that directly enriches girls in STEM education! Faculty and students from Drexel University are partnering with Girls, Inc. of Philadelphia to offer a unique experiential learning opportunity for middle school girls this July. The College of Engineering is hosting 24 girls at the Innovation Studio, and in labs and classrooms across Drexel’s campus for a week-long STEM GIRLS summer program. The girls will learn about STEM subjects through workshops organized and taught by 46 different faculty and students from across the College. They will mentor and motivate young girls from the City of Philadelphia who have not had the opportunity to interact with and learn from STEM experts on Drexel’s campus. Our goal is to address the gap that begins to emerge in the middle school years among girls from underrepresented communities by creating a girls only summer STEM program that captures their interest and provides a supportive and fun environment to learn about STEM subjects. Our long-term plan is to offer the Drexel STEM girls summer program every year. Here are some important details: Dates: July 24 – 28, 9:00 am to 5 pm Daily workshop sessions: 9:30-12:00 and 1:30-4:00 Each workshop session will be attended by 8-10 girls with 1-2 Girls, Inc. coordinators Workshop locations: Innovation Studio, labs, classrooms, or in the field Some of the workshops offering this year are: (Nariman Mostafavi and Hamed Yassaghi, Architectural Engineering). The girls will be building bridges out of spaghetti and testing their strength. (Brandon Terranova, Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics). The girls will have the chance to design and 3D print a keepsake. There will be a brief overview of 3D printing followed by an activity where we will go through a series of exercises, culminating in an object that each attendee will have designed themselves. (Mira Olson, Environmental Engineering). The girls will build water filters to clean a muddy water sample. (Ezra Wood, Chemistry). The girls will learn about phase transitions and carbon dioxide by doing experiments with dry ice. (Aaron Fafarman, Chemical and Biological Engineering). The girls will synthesize a solar cell in the lab.

  • Green Infrastructure, Climate and Cities Seminar Series

    Wednesday, August 2, 2017

    Water resource management More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. This demographic shift creates a host of new opportunities, but also some new risks, especially given the challenges posed by climatic extremes. This timely seminar series focuses attention on these issues, and what decision makers, researchers, and practitioners are learning about how to address them. The focus of the CCRUN seminar series is on urban solutions to global problems associated with increasing temperature and sea level rise, precipitation variability, and greenhouse gas emissions. We are interested in the implications of such changes on the complex infrastructure of intensely developed landscapes, and on the health, well-being, and vulnerability of the people who live in them. This seminar will focus on water resources management. Experts in the field will present their research. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.
