- Assistive therapy devices for individuals on the autism spectrum – During the past two years, we have developed three generations of vibration therapy devices intended to minimize symptomatic behaviors of children on the autism spectrum.
- Nanotechnology – Education – Students have the opportunity to learn about nanotechnology and develop new teaching techniques to introduce these lessons to their peers and neighboring K-12 institutions.
- Nanotechnology – Energy Storage
Students have the opportunity to explore the realm of one-dimensional nanometer-scale (0.000 000 001 meter) devices and see how they can be used for energy storage applications.
