Council Rock H.S. North Features Trip to Drexel

Posted on October 10, 2018

CR North Honors Experimental Research in STEM students had the opportunity to visit the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute at Drexel University on Tuesday. Drexel University doctoral students and professors discussed their research and toured the students through the cutting edge labs. The students also enjoyed demos and did experiments to explore the properties of various materials. Several North students worked last year in Drexel’s research labs, and this relationship will continue this year. View the full story here.

Drexel’s Spray-On Antennas Could Be the Tech Connector of the Future

Posted on October 9, 2018

The promise of wearables, functional fabrics, the Internet of Things, and their “next-generation” technological cohort seems tantalizingly within reach. But researchers in the field will tell you a prime reason for their delayed “arrival” is the problem of seamlessly integrating connection technology — namely, antennas — with shape-shifting and flexible “things.” But a breakthrough by researchers in Drexel’s College of Engineering, could now make installing an antenna as easy as applying some bug spray. In research recently published in Science…
