Solar Powered Digital Classroom in a Box

MEMS enabled pico-projectors are used to deliver educational content to developing countries lacking consistent and wide-spread grid electrical power. A fold-up solar panel and battery are included in the box to allow educators and others to share information to a whole room full of people.

Integrative E-Learning Course

Texas Tech University has a unique opportunity to engage a growing number of underserved and underrepresented students who are designated as students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Project CASE students from the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research are teaming up with Engineering and Business students to undertake technology commercialization projects through various entrepreneurship courses.

The project team includes Professor Kelli Frias, PhD from Rawls College of Business - Marketing and DeAnn Lechtenberger, PhD from The Burkhart Center.

Class on a Chip

The Class on a Chip System is a state-of-the-art and user friendly way to access the microscopic world. The System includes a MEMS chip with multiple, user-controllable devices and a custom power-supply specifically designed to power the microdevices. Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) allow on-screen control of devices. A microscope is needed to image the motion of the devices. The MEMS device is fabricated using Sandia National Labs' SUMMiT V polysilicon MEMS process.
