Annoyed by that crack on your phone’s screen? You wouldn’t be if the screen could heal itself, like a body heals a cut. That day is coming. Research and development in this area is so popular now that today’s advice to Benjamin Braddock would be two words: self-healing plastics.
As a child in East Asia, he loved Origami. Today, he uses it as part of his research. Folding paper into complex shapes helps researchers use the principles of geometry to envision new materials and structures. Meet Suyi Li. Title: Assistant professor Years at Clemson: 3 What I do at Clemson: Being a teacher, my role […]

The Duke Energy Foundation is providing $85,000 to Clemson University to continue support of two separate summer programs that are aimed at increasing diversity in the pipeline that carries talent from academia to the workplace. The foundation granted $45,000 to Project WISE and $40,000 to PEER/WISE Summer Experiences.
Deaths that have been tied to social media challenges are capturing the attention of Clemson University researchers who want to begin developing new ways of protecting adolescents and young adults from harming themselves.
U.S. Air Force Capt. William R. Austin II and his aircraft commander had out-maneuvered certain death hundreds of times before they got hit. A fighter pilot with the storied “Triple Nickel” 555th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Austin had flown 80 combat missions over North Vietnam in the powerful F-4 Phantom II despite the enemy’s attempts to […]
A boat that drives itself and picks up trash from the ocean? That’s the stuff of science fiction, but it's reality for a dozen lucky Upstate elementary, middle and high school students who are building their own autonomous boats in a Clemson University summer camp.
