Students Use 3D Printing Technology

Students Use 3D Printing Technology

Sometimes, not all of the parts needed to perform a research lab experiment are readily available, but that isn’t stopping some creative Rutgers University–Camden students from thinking outside the box. If they don’t have it, they’ll invent it. It’s becoming more common for students to use 3D printing technology to build tools for their research […]

Students Discover Method for Developing Clean Hydrogen Fuel

Students Discover Method for Developing Clean Hydrogen Fuel

Recycling waste materials into new products is a common method for sustaining a green environment, but it isn’t only limited to reusing old cans, plastics, and paper. In chemistry, scientists use discarded materials to create renewable sources of energy. A pair of Rutgers University–Camden students has found a new family of functional materials for the […]

Rutgers–Camden Students Help LEAP Innovators in “Fab Lab”

Rutgers–Camden Students Help LEAP Innovators in “Fab Lab”

Liz Ramos sketches out a shape on a notepad while taking inventory of the robotics parts assembled on her desk at the LEAP Academy University Charter School.  If she’s missing a gear or some other piece for her prototype, she won’t panic.  She’ll simply invent one. Ramos and her innovative classmates are taking their designs […]

Chemistry Scholar Producing Toxicity Database for Researchers

Chemistry Scholar Producing Toxicity Database for Researchers

A Rutgers–Camden professor is developing a comprehensive data system that can be used as a valuable computational tool for researchers by providing them with access to chemical toxicity information. Hao Zhu, an assistant professor of chemistry, is building the “automated profiling system” from existing bioassay data from public resources.  The new chemical toxicity profiles can […]
