JUMP into STEM

Athletic performance wireless sensors are used to teach STEM concepts. The sensors are capable of measuring jump height and hang time. The demonstration and presentation includes how microsensors (MEMS) are used to measure the jump parameters and what physics principles and equations are used. Student and teacher participation are vital to the fun and engaging experience. Contact Prof. Tim Dallas (tim.dallas@ttu.edu) about scheduling a demonstration for your K-12 school.

UniNorte Exchange Program

In 2015, the Universidad del Norte (Baranquilla, Colombia) and Texas Tech University established a student exchange program. Students from each university spend 8 weeks abroad conducting research and taking a class on renewable energy. The program concludes with poster presentations by the participating students discussing their summer research accomplishments. Interested TTU students should contact Prof. Tim Dallas (tim.dallas@ttu.edu).

Class on a Chip

MEMS devices are everywhere. Students get to learn how they work and what they do. Demonstration include operating microscale motors and other tiny devices. Contact Prof. Tim Dallas (tim.dallas@ttu.edu) about scheduling a demonstration for your K-12 school.
