Professor Nakamura engages his STEAM researchers in a thought provoking topic on “What does being a scientist mean to you?”.
EESL members worked on posters, sincerely answering the set of questions:
- What do you think the ideal researcher/engineer/scientist/designer would be?
- Do you have an idea for enforcing our leadership; being a self-starter?
- What are you research goals?/ Updates on prior goals?
What does the City Tech community think it means to be a researcher/engineer/scientist/designer?

Congratulations EESL members on Bryan Ortiz, Xiao Lin, and Patrice Prosper!
They completed semester long research projects, among 129 City Tech participants.
Their design and technology are a demonstration of EESL’s core values in Energy and Environmental conscious research, sustainability and living.
EESL celebrates the end of the Fall 2018 semester with another great research topic :
Research Assistant Laurent Elysee presents the “Subway Air Quality” data collected via sensor technology.
Throughout the semester Tu Nguyen, Laurent Elysee and Patrice Prosper conducted research; collecting data using programmed Arduino sensor tech on NYC subway platforms.
The “Real Time Airborne Particle Emissions” research project was headed by Tu Nguyen who also severed as lead for “The NSF 2026 Idea Machine” research grant application.
This Fall 2018 semester Xiao Lin has been hard at work, designing an Anaerobic Indoor Composter for household mix organic disposal.
We are all proud of Xiao’s successful research!
The technology is sophisticated and requires the use of EESL’s sensor technology.
The composter design is being entered in the “CUNY-I-CORPS”, a precursor to the “NSF Regional I-Corps” program, to find a potential commercial market segment.
