Space for student teams

The planned Innovation Design Center (IDC) at Purdue will provide dedicated work space for student projects such as the EcoCAR 2, Solar Decathlon or Rube Goldberg competitions.

The first phase of the IDC, which will be located at Third and Russell Streets, will be coordinated by the colleges of Technology and Engineering.

Student research on astronaut restraints published in JPUR

As part of their senior design course in aviation, three students undertook a project to design an electronic personal restraint system for NASA astronauts to use in microgravity environments. The design, created by Kevin Tait, Justin Lewis and Justin Hickel, would  allow an astronaut to walk along a surface while being electromagnetically restrained to it. The system would also release the user in the event of power failure.
