Latest News From the College of Sciences

  • Replacing Textbooks with Websites

    Textbooks are the bane of students. Their cost has increased significantly over the past decade. In 2010, the average price of a textbook was $133. The cost of science and mathematics tomes averages even higher. Beyond the financial drain, textbooks are often bloated with information that will not and cannot be covered during the one or two semesters they are intended to be used. For students and professors alike, there’s got to be a better way. Ever inventive and industrious, academics in the School of Biological Sciences have found a solution: replace textbooks with custom-built websites.

  • The Electric Sands of Titan

    Experiments suggest the particles that cover the surface of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, are “electrically charged.” When the wind blows hard enough (approximately 15 mph), Titan’s non-silicate granules get kicked up and start to hop in a motion referred to as saltation. As they collide, they become frictionally charged, like a balloon rubbing against your hair, and clump together in a way not observed for sand dune grains on Earth — they become resistant to further motion. They attach to other hydrocarbon substances, much like packing peanuts used in shipping boxes here on Earth.

  • Peter Webster Elected Honorary Fellow of U.K. Meteorological Society

    The atmospheric scientist joins British royalty, science community giants, and other luminaries by accepting the honor

  • Faculty-Teacher Duo Combines Electrochemistry and Dance to Teach Engineering to High School Students

    Through the PRIME Research Experiences for Teachers Program, Hatzell and Okoh have partnered to create an innovative way to teach high school students electrochemistry techniques for water purification.

  • Dunn Institute Chair To Support Two Professorships

    The donor for Dunn Family Institute Chair at Georgia Tech requested that the inaugural award be in the School of Physics. College of Sciences Dean Paul Goldbart had an idea: Split the endowment between two physics faculty members.
