The sounds are created from the 15 pulsar signals captured by the university students and researchers using China's Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST). Among them, 13 pulsar signals were released for the first time, according to the university. … [Read more...] about Across China: University offers admission letter with “sounds from universe”

Though she acknowledges scrutiny of executive pay as a fact of her life, Beer fears tabloid headline figures will drown out any debate. She points out that vice-chancellors are often not the best paid people in a university. “We had a case recently where a brilliant clinical researcher with ties to the area, who was earning £400,000 a year in an American university, was willing to come home much less,” she says. There were six months of negotiations to bring the researcher’s team – world-leading in terms of vaccine development – over here. “Then”, Beer says, “the minute we took up references the American university just doubled all of their salaries … ” We work, she says, predictably but honestly, “in a global market”. … [Read more...] about What next for England’s troubled universities?
Designed using Autodesk Fusion, the case was printed on a Prusa I3 3D printer and took around three hours following an iterative process, each time improving the print learning from the lessons of the previous failed print. James learned about the tolerances in his model and those of the 3D printer. His diligence paid off after a series of failed prints produced a stiff hinge that would break, and posts used to hold the Pi in place that rubbed against the USB / Ethernet ports. James finally produced a case which enabled the Raspberry Pi to be inserted and removed with great ease. … [Read more...] about 3D Printed Raspberry Pi Case Folds Around Your Pi
“This game-changing work is at the frontiers of science, engineering and education. We are committed to connecting our research discoveries to industry, so they can have real-world impacts,” said Michael Khonsari, the board’s associate commissioner for research an LSU professor and project director for the alliance. … [Read more...] about 5 schools; $20M grant to design 3D printing materials; teach
The students at Silverstone who are eligible for the pupil premium are outperforming those who aren’t. Paterson believes a possible reason for this is that students spend 31% more time at UTCs than they would in mainstream settings. As well as a longer day – 8.30am to 5pm – inset days are used for teaching, with training reserved for evenings. The day also ends with 45 minutes of independent study, which supports students who find it difficult to work at home. … [Read more...] about University technical colleges: five years on, the jury’s still out
