Many students take part in workshops and symposia during the summer, but Mallory Ladd got the chance to participate in a particularly notable event. Ladd, a graduate research fellow and doctoral student the joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Bredesen Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education, attended the sixty-fifth annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in
The nuclear engineering department at UT built on a series of successes recently by bringing home eight top awards at a conference hosted by the American Nuclear Society at Texas A&M University.
Ask-A-Scientist started when scientist Matt Bishop was having his car towed in Los Alamos, New Mexico, last summer and the tow truck driver and his son asked him questions ranging from robotics to genetics.
A group of six students have written a detailed comment to the proposed Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan which is open for public comment. An article by two of the students, Justin Knowles and Remy DeVoe, is featured on the American Nuclear Society website. The students’ comment discusses the plan’s inconsistencies and the corresponding
This week’s Science Forum at UT will look at alternative transportation energy sources and innovations. Claus Daniel, deputy director of the Sustainable Transportation program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will talk on “Electrification of Transportation: Cost and Opportunities.” His discussion begins at noon on Friday, September 19, in Room C-D of Thompson-Boling Arena.
Two students will be the first to earn a new doctoral degree Thursday from the Energy Science and Engineering program founded by former governor Phil Bredesen in partnership with UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
With the first set of UT Bredesen Center graduates set to receive their doctorates next week, students who will be in the next wave of graduates are already finding success. Andrew Lepore, working out of the Materials Science and Technology Division through the center, recently won a prestigious ORNL-related prize at the Next Big Idea
From extreme drought to super storms, many wonder what the future holds for the climate of the eastern United States. A study conducted Joshua Fu, a civil and environmental engineering professor, and Yang Gao, a graduate research assistant, does away with the guessing. Results show the region will be hotter and wetter.

The Knoxville News Sentinel featured a statewide middle school teacher professional development workshop called Tennessee STEM Leadership Academy. Tennessee Solar Conversion and Storage Using Outreach, Research, and Education (TN-SCORE) played a role in the academy through funding.
This weekend, UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek will join the likes of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in addressing the largest gathering of chief executive officers from universities around the world. The chancellor will be speaking at the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) Triennial conference, held every three years.
Three graduate students at UT Knoxville are recipients of the 2011 National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship. The program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees.
