Oct. 22, 2013—Mikhail Chester will give a presentation about training ASU students to recognize sustainable infrastructure and how to transition existing infrastructure for future uses at the National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) Frontiers of Engineering Education symposium Oct. 27-30 in Irvine, Calif. He is one the 73 selected from among a large pool of candidates nominated by deans of engineering schools and colleges, as well as members of the national academy, for their innovative approaches to teaching.
Chester is an assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Build Environment, one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. He also is on the faculty of ASU’s School of Sustainability. Read on Full Circle
Oct. 22, 2013—Arizona State University engineers have constructed a lithium-ion battery using paper coated with carbon nanotubes that provide electrical conductivity. Using an origami-folding pattern similar to how maps are folded, they folded the paper into a stack of 25 layers, producing a compact, flexible battery that provides significant energy density — or the amount of energy stored in a given system or space per unit of volume of mass.
