Science Undergrad Research Fair

We will be hosting our largest event of the semester this Friday, March 6th from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm in the Quadrangle and Lone Star Rooms in the Union! We will present the stories of experienced researchers on how they got into research and what they do now, as well as showcase interesting science and it’s applications through a series of interactive events. Come out for some delicious catered food and to learn more about research on campus! (We might also have prizes and free shirts — hint, hint!) 😀

Forty Acres Field Trip Volunteering

This will be the second year that SURGe participates in the Forty Acres Field Trip! The field trip is on December 8th, 2014. Forty Acres field trip will take place in the Frank Erwin Center. This will occur from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.This event invites students 4th through 7th grade to UT to see a women’s basketball game. SURGe will have a booth at the pre-game expo. We will be doing a science activity similar to our booth at Longhorn Halloween for those of you who were there.

Come volunteer with us!

ESI-Drones: Myths, Facts, Hacks, and The Future


Join us as Dr. Todd Humphreys gives a talk on drones!

Drones have been all over the media as well as our imaginations. What’s real and what’s possible for these remarkable flying machines? Todd Humphreys will consider the ways drones can be used in the future versus what is portrayed in the movies. He will also show us how his team was the first to successfully demonstrate that drones could be commandeered by GPS hacking.

Todd Humphreys directs the Radionavigation Laboratory at UT-Austin, where advanced radionavigation technology is being developed, and novel ways to exploit and protect radionavigation systems such as GPS are being explored.

The talk will be on November 21st from 5:15 to 7 PM in WEL Hall.

Speaker: Sean Roberts

Come hear a talk by Assistant Professor Sean Roberts!

Molecular and nanoscale electronics are exceptionally versatile materials due to ability to tune their electronic properties by changing chemical functionalization or molecular size and shape. Due to their small, dynamics that occur at surfaces and interfaces within these materials often have a disproportionate influence over their properties. The Roberts group seeks to understand how interfacial interactions impact the electronic properties of these materials.

The talk will be on November 21st, 2014 from 4-5 PM in PAI 2.48.
