Going Big by Going Home
Engineering Energy Efficiency
Feb 27, 2020A multidisciplinary international team of scientists and engineers led by Texas A&M chemist Sarbajit Banerjee has discovered a neuron-like electrical switching mechanism in a solid-state material and how it reversibly morphs between conducting and insulating behavior on command, bringing researchers one step closer to developing brain-emulating materials for energy efficient computing.
Evolution :: Faith
Feb 19, 2020The Trotter Prize and Endowed Lecture Series, set this year for Thursday, Feb. 27, in the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building, seeks to illuminate connections between science and religion, often viewed in academia as non-overlapping if not rival world views.
Honoring Teaching Excellence
Feb 14, 2020Chemist Holly Gaede and biologist Andrew Tag are among the 10 campus-wide faculty celebrated February 27 as Texas A&M University's inaugural cohort of Provost Academic Professional Track Teaching Excellence Award recipients honored for exceptional classroom teaching that fosters meaningful learning experiences.
The Human Element
Feb 13, 2020Professors get their fair share of requests from their students. Last spring, Texas A&M chemist Simon North received his most unique to date when two former students in his freshman chemistry course, Julia Santell '19 and Josiah Day '19, asked him to officiate at their August 17 wedding. The rest, as they say, is history — er, chemistry.
Science of Inspiration
Jan 30, 2020If experience truly is one of life's most effective teachers, now's your chance to learn from some of the best in the STEM professions and Aggieland at the 28th Annual Women In Science & Engineering Conference, "Women Evolving in STEM," set for Saturday, Feb. 22, at Texas A&M.
