CLEMSON – With minds as sharp as pencils, more than 700 eager students descended on the campus of Clemson University to attend the 39th Annual Biology Merit Exam on Friday (April 27). The longtime mega-event, which recognizes and promotes outstanding achievement among middle and high school students in South Carolina, is sponsored by the department […]
By juxtaposing contrasting properties of two different nanomaterials, a team of Clemson University physicists has developed an optical diode that enables light to move in one direction. The development overcomes an obstacle in the quest for better optical isolators for high-energy lasers and optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.
Tripp and Anne Jones have been tailgating in the same spot at Clemson long enough to watch a tree grow up alongside their children and grandchildren, but the length of time they have been a part of the Clemson family barely scratches the surface of their commitment to Clemson.
CLEMSON – The department of mathematical sciences hosted the 16th annual Clemson Calculus Challenge (CCC) on April 20 in the Hendrix Student Center, rallying approximately 274 high school students from 38 schools across the eastern U.S. for a battle of the brains. Split into two portions, an individual exam held in the morning and a […]
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Dec. 12, 2017, Clemson chemistry professor R. Kenneth Marcus was named a Fellow to the prestigious National Academy of Inventors (NAI). On April 11, 2018, he received Congressional Record recognition on the floor of Congress. U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland read aloud the names of the 155 inventors – including […]
CLEMSON – Clemson’s second-ever Spring Fling took place on April 14, bringing alumni and Clemson fans to campus in a sea of orange. Created by the Clemson Alumni Association in 2017, Spring Fling reunited alumni who participated in Greek organizations, intramural teams, sports teams and other student activities with their former classmates. The event was […]
CLEMSON – Two standout graduate students from the College of Science will be presented university-wide awards at the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony on May 10. Clemson University’s Graduate School has awarded the Outstanding Graduate Researcher Award (GRA) to Yunhui Peng of the department of physics and astronomy. Huixi Li of the department of mathematical sciences has […]
Six Clemson students traveled to Boston College last week to participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Meeting of the Minds. The conference is held annually every spring to celebrate undergraduate research and provides an opportunity for sharing of ideas and collaboration.
Jim Melvin, director of communications and marketing for Clemson University’s College of Science, has won a silver medal in the 2018 Association for Communication Excellence’s critique and awards program.
CLEMSON – With over $900,000 in private endowed scholarships awarded to Science students in the 2017-2018 academic year, the College of Science has plenty to thank its donors for. A celebration event on April 5 in a meeting room at the Clyde V. Madren Conference Center aimed to do just that. The event brought together […]
A study out of Clemson University’s department of biological sciences has identified tiny particles in the brain that regulate the neuroimmune system, a result that might one day be used in treating traumatic brain injuries or viral infections of the brain.
Clemson University Ph.D. student Abby Baker has developed workshops to deliver concepts related to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) to elementary school students. The workshops are part of a Clemson Creative Inquiry project that sees Clemson students translate college-level STEAM projects for a fifth-grade audience. The lessons are a valuable extension in the education of Clemson students and the fifth graders they teach, but Baker is thinking even bigger. She is testing a model that she hopes will be copied across a state with a growing need for students interested in science and math.
CLEMSON – The College of Science honored its outstanding undergraduate and graduate students Friday (April 6) at the IPTAY Suite in Memorial Stadium. An assembly of standout students received a variety of prestigious awards during the event, which featured food, photos and an uplifting video. More than 50 – including parents, faculty and staff – […]
CLEMSON – The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization has predicted that the world’s population will reach 9.1 billion by 2050, prompting efforts from scientists to find ways to feed a growing number of people on a diminishing area of land. The subjects of overpopulation and sustainable intensification – more production with fewer impacts – […]
