Three high school students working in a science lab for the first time made a surprising discovery with an RIT professor. Now, the young women are co-authors on a scientific paper announcing a rare bacterium that kills e-coli.
A new book outlining research methods for the social and behavioral sciences has been published to help advanced undergraduate and graduate students perform research in the laboratory, in the field or online.
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.
RIT has been recognized by Forbes on its 2019 list of “America's Best Midsize Employers.” RIT earned 66th place overall on the list of 500 companies and is the fourth-highest ranked university of the 35 universities listed.
An interactive, drop-in workshop at Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival on April 27 will introduce visitors of all ages to a popular form of independent, immediate publishing. It’s not the Internet; it’s the zine (“zeen”).
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.
An interactive workshop at @Imagine_RIT will introduce visitors to zines, a popular form of independent publishing, and attendees will be able to explore the medium with paper and crafting supplies. #ImagineRIT#RITt.co/SqfTpe7TwQ
