Scientists have been floating designs for solar sails to propel spacecraft for decades, but a new approach being developed by an RIT professor could be the key to helping spacecraft photograph the poles of the sun for the first time.
The big wheel will turn, but the hamsters will be humans instead. Students in RIT’s Engineering House built a Human Hamster Wheel, and instead of running in circles, as the cliché goes, their 7-foot wheel will produce electricity. Open to children and adults, the wheel will be one of many interactive exhibits featured at this year’s Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival on April 27.

While many people flock to warm destinations for spring break, two RIT experimental cosmologists spent theirs 6,800 feet high on snow-covered Kitt Peak at the Arizona Radio Observatory. They were deploying an instrument to a 12-meter telescope for a project called the Tomographic Ionized-carbon Mapping Experiment (TIME), which aims to study the universe’s first stars and galaxies.
Imagine RIT visitors interested in learning about electric and hybrid-electric bikes get to participate in an interactive exhibit and discussion on the growing travel mode inside the Golisano Institute for Sustainability on April 27.
A team of computing security students will demonstrate how the unique properties that exist in the radio waves of a wireless device can allow a third-party to single out, fingerprint and track that specific Wi-Fi device during the Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival on Saturday.
Undergraduate students from universities in the Northeast competed at the 2019 American Society of Civil Engineers concrete canoe and steel bridge event. Teams displayed canoes and built bridge structures (RIT team shown here) as part of the competition.
The latest issue of RIT University Magazine includes stories on how the RIT Venture Fund helps turn ideas into businesses; online education; and how alumni, students, faculty, and staff are making a difference around the world.
Local media will be sharing a sneak peek at @Imagine_RIT Thursday morning during our media day. Tune in to see what's in store for you Saturday! #ImagineRIT#RIT
