Before heading off to his new job at Intel® Corp., Texas A&M chemistry graduate Andrew Brown '15 revisited his time at Texas A&M, his research on molecular nanomagnets and what attracted him to Aggieland from Pennsylvania in the first place. Read his story and hear Brown describe his work as the subject of our latest Labors of Lab episode.
Building Astronomy in Texas
Event, Physics and Astronomy -
Astronomers from across Texas will be visiting the Texas A&M campus in September for a weekend workshop hosted by the Mitchell Institute and focused on the growth of astronomy as well as related scientific collaborations throughout the Lone Star State.
Training for Science Teachers
Outreach, College of Science -
Central Texas area teachers interested in expanding their educations this fall have several exciting options, courtesy of the Texas A&M-College Station Regional Collaborative for Science. See what we offer and how you can get involved for free!
Cleaner, Greener Chemistry
Research, Chemistry -
In 2012, Texas A&M chemist Joe Zhou's research resulted in a novel carbon-capture technique poised to significantly reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by power plants across the nation and world. Three years later, his latest carbon-capture proposal is one of 16 selected nationwide by the Department of Energy to advance new CO2 storage technologies.
Novel Graduate Training
Graduate, College of Science -
Texas A&M is one of 10 institutions nationwide selected by the National Science Foundation for funding to establish a new interdisciplinary program, Data-Enabled Discovery and Design of Energy Materials, that spans two colleges and six departments in its effort to position Texas A&M at the forefront of STEM graduate training.
New Celestial Neighbors
Research, Physics and Astronomy -
Armed with one of the world's most powerful digital cameras, the Dark Energy Survey has now mapped one-eighth of the full sky. This international effort involving Texas A&M astronomers has led to the discovery of 17 dwarf galaxy candidates in the past six months, including eight new candidates announced today.
Research, College of Science -
These days, it's nearly impossible to be admitted into graduate school without some form of undergraduate research training. Undergrads from across the state, nation and world have spent the past two months in Aggieland, getting top-quality research experience and a crash course in graduate life as part of the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
The Right Stuff
Undergraduate, College of Science -
Texas A&M seniors Kirstin Maulding '16 and Will Linz '16 have been selected as the university's latest recipients of $10,000 scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, which seeks to strengthen U.S. leadership in science and technology by supporting the nation's best undergraduate students pursuing STEM majors.
Through five departments and many interdisciplinary centers and institutes, we advance discovery and solve real-world problems while producing the next generation of scientific leaders and providing technical innovation and service to the world.
