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!) 😀
West Mall Sale
Friday, November 14 @ 9am-4pm; West Mall Area
Celebrate the joy of giving by getting a lovely plant for a Christmas gift for your friends and family! Your money will help support undergraduate researchers at UT Austin!
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!
Join SURGe on December 6th, 2014 for our last event of the semester, Funday! Come wind down with us during finals. We will be bowling in the UNION from 4pm to 6pm.
Join us for the last west mall on Dec 5 from 9 AM to 4 PM. Come help SURGe sell plants or buy some for yourself.
There will be no meeting on November 28th from 4 to 5 PM in PAI 2.48. Happy Thanksgiving!
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.
Come listen to Professor Karen Vasquez who studies molecular mechanisms of DNA damage recognition and repair in the field of Pharmacy/ Molecular Biology.
The talk will be on November 14th, 2014 from 4-5 PM in PAI 2.48.
For more information, please visit the Laboratory of Dr. Karen Vasquez website.
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.
