at Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
EESL’s winter break was filled with inquiry and investigation.
What if our technology could be brought to a commercial audience?
Then we tested our hypothesis by interviewing a few market segments:
Finally we presented our results:
Do we have a viable product?
Join our next event and find out.
I’m Ryan Redhead, a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL). I am a Mechanical Engineering major at New York City College of Technology and I am interested in turning waste to energy. What I can bring to the group, in particular, will come in the form of knowledge in Mechanical Engineering. This research seems particularly interesting to me since so much waste is produced by people. This waste is taking up space and not being utilized in the world to its full potential. To me, waste seems like an abundant untapped resource. If we can find a way to harness energy from waste, the possibilities would be endless. I am excited to learn more about research in general and the topic of turning waste into energy.
I’m Thalyia Thompson a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL). I’m a mechanical engineering major and interested in finding ways for efficiently conserving energy. I feel as if a lot of our energy is being wasted because many people don’t know how much energy they’re actually using. If we really saw how much energy was being used then maybe it would influence us to tweak the way we live our daily lives. I hope to bring in ideas that I learn from my physics, mechanics and engineer drawing classes into my research here at EESL. I have never been apart of a research group so I’m extremely excited about learning how to collect and present data in a professional format.
My name is Bryan Ortiz and I’m a mechanical engineering tech major. I joined the EESL to learn more on ways of making renewable and sustainable energy, and to learn how to perform research. I always had an affinity to help people with my engineering, and I felt that renewable energy was the way to go, since I love nature. However, my dream is to do engineering work in other countries as well, especially Japan or Hong Kong. I want to do that by researching and creating inventions to make the world more sustainable.
Following a deep discussion about gun violence in the U.S and a series of mass shootings that have taken place between 1983 -2012 totaling 78, some key take aways are:
What does the literature tell us?
What can we do to make a change?
