Fiction: “Subterranean” by James Rollins describes a very scary world of monsters beneath Antarctica. It is definitely a work of fiction. Fact: In the real world, Dr. Priscu and his team of researchers from Montana State University actually DID discover life under the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Here is […]
Digit is an autonomous robot that sits in an autonomous vehicle. Once the destination is reached, your house for example, Digit finishes the delivery by getting out of the car and dropping the package off at your door. Very cool stuff! Go here for more information on Digit. […]
Quantum Physics is super easy….not! Check out this very interesting TED Talk video where Dr. Shohini Ghose, Professor of Astrophysics at Wilfrid Laurier University, makes quantum physics and quantum computing interesting and fun. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) students can study Quantum Physics then design and implement […]
Here is a a very cool introduction to 5G for your smartphones from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). FYI….my Masters degree (University of Kansas) is in “Microwave Communication Theory” soooooo, I love this stuff. For those students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), […]
