Making a Difference: Mentoring and Teaching Today’s Youth

News and Highlights

Today MIT Technology Review revealed its annual list of Innovators Under 35. For her work in the field of Nanotechnology and Materials, Dr. Ying Diao, Assistant Professor and Dow Chemical Company Faculty Scholar in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois, has been recognized as a pioneer on the list.
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering students will be holding a bake sale from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22 through Friday, Aug. 26, on the south side of the Illini Union on the Quad. All proceeds from the event will go toward the Rebekah Schiff-Berger Scholarship in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
For gene-editing proteins to be useful in clinical applications, they need to be able to find the specific site they’re supposed to edit among billions of DNA sequences. Using advanced imaging techniques, University of Illinois researchers have found that one class of genome-editing proteins rapidly travels along a strand of DNA like a rider on a zip line – a unique behavior among documented DNA-binding proteins.
To make a stable structure and learn about balanced force and equal pull, a group of third graders paired up, connected their wrists and leaned back, making an inverted triangle. Instead of passing out worksheets to elementary students, teachers can, with the help of a new book, use creative movement to introduce scientific topics such as cantilevers and compound machines.
A team of top scientists from several universities, including the University of Illinois, are collaborating to develop a new class of polymers that can be used as advanced materials for batteries, energy storage, and sophisticated lightweight electronics.
