Prof. James Gilchrist, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Students on the team:
The Gilchrist Lab has developed magnetically responsive microrollers that will be the main focus of this project. The team will research existing granular applications and brainstorm new ideas, rapid-prototype their experiments, perform data analysis, and prepare presentations. Students will use a combination of resources, including laser-cutting, 3D-printing, glassworks, and Lego Robotics, to manipulate and analyze the behavior of these materials. Students with engineering and physics backgrounds or interests, and students who are creative problem solvers with an entrepreneurial spirit, are encouraged to apply.
