ME Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI) - 2016


The DEL SURI's had a productive (and fun!) summer. Posters explaining their summer research work were presented on Friday, August 28, 2015 at the Huang Engineering Center. The research projects included:

Shane Clarkson - Exploring Tensile Strength of Materials using Chalk as a Case Study

Emily Cao - Innovation in Engineering Education: An exploration of academic programs, gender, and self-efficacy

Bethany Chaffin - Using Research to Explore and Define Successful Pedagogical Strategies for Innovative Engineers

Shane, Emily and Bethany were assisted by Helen Chen, Shannon Gilmartin, Qu Jin, Mark Schar and Sheri Sheppard.

Goodbye, Mario - Kasierscharrn Feast

Mario Roser will be returning to Germany, finishing up a successful stay at Stanford. As part of the tradition, Mario treated the entire Lab to one of his hometown, special dishes ... and set a new high mark for culinary talents. We all sampled Kaiserschmarrn, a pancake-like mixture with raisins, topped with a bit of powdered sugar and a sprig of fresh mint. To complete the experience, we washed it down with a pomegranate San Pellegrino and he sent us on our way with a wrapped Giradelli chocolate.

We wish Mario the best as he returns to Germany and we know that we will be hearing from him again in the future!

Mario shared is Kaiserschmarnn recipe with the DEL community,  which he says came directly from Oma Roser.

Helena Scutt goes for Gold at Rio

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.
