Physics Ph.D. candidates Nicolas Scozzaro and Hiran Wijesinghe were awarded a 2016 Student Project Grant from Tech Hub for their app, “Physics is Beautiful.” The award is a $2,000 grant to continue developing their project: an interactive website/app of physics lessons presented in a game-like environment. Scozzaro approached the Center to request minor/administrative support to get the collaborative idea off the ground, and CEM is proud to have supported their innovative and successful idea.

Associate Director Dr. Jessica Winter was recently named Design News’ annual Rising Engineering Star at the Golden Mousetrap Awards in Anaheim, California.
Winter was nominated by Matt Schutte, director of communications & engineering healthcare solutions at Ohio State’s College of Engineering. When asked about his decision to nominate Winter, he was quoted as saying she“epitomizes the growing trend of engineers applying their skills to solve healthcare challenges. As a cancer survivor herself, she approaches her research with urgency and empathy, and with a focus on translation — on taking knowledge from the bench to the bedside. Jessica is much more than a professor, she is an entrepreneur, a mentor to dozens of students, an enthusiastic Ohio State engineering ambassador, and a productively impatient researcher who knows she can make a difference.”
