ME Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI) - 2016

SURI 2016.jpg

The DEL SURI's had a productive (and fun!) summer. Posters explaining their summer research work were presented on Friday, August 26, 2016 at the Huang Engineering Center. The research projects included:

Katie Reinders - Job Decision Factors: The Considerations of Recent Graduates Choosing Their First Jobs

Chloe Wiggins - How Have Engineering Students’ Clarity of Plans Changed Over Time?

Sophia Pink - What Makes an Inquisitive Engineer? Exploring question-asking self-efficacy and outcome expectations among engineering students

Amber Levine - Inspiring Engineers to Think About Their Education: An Exploration of the Impacts of Surveys on Participants

Katie, Chloe, Sophia and Amber were assisted by Beth Rieken, Helen Chen, Shannon Gilmartin, and Sheri Sheppard.

DEL's own Helena Scutt is a member of the U.S. Olympic Sailing team and will be competing in Rio this summer.  Helena will be competing with her racing partner, Paris Henken, on a new class of boat - the 49erFX - which is screaming fast, tough to sail and very fun to watch!  You can read about their adventures on their website and watch them compete on Friday, August 12.

Go Helena and Paris!

Intentional Engineers: Reflection and Mindfulness in Engineering Classrooms - April 7, 2016

The goal of Consortium to Promote Reflection in Engineering Education (CPREE) is to prepare U.S. engineering graduates for the contemporary challenges of the profession. CPREE recently held a workshop at Stanford University led by Beth RiekenKJ Chew, Helen Chen of DEL and Cindy Atman and Lauren Thomas of the University of Washington.

The purpose of the workshop was discuss how contemplative practices, such as reflection and mindfulness, can enrich analytic learning in engineering courses. The material covered simple techniques to introduce reflection and mindfulness into the classroom. The workshop was attended by 20 participants from Stanford and surrounding institutions and was generally considered a great success.
