  • Math Madness at Georgia Tech

    The competition comprised four exams covering algebra, geometry, combinatorics, number theory, and basic calculus. Volunteer Georgia Tech faculty, staff, and students, led by School of Mathematics Professor and Chair Rachel Kuske, hosted the event.

  • The Science of Defecation Could Produce Better Medicine for Constipation

    A new study led by researchers in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering finds that all mammals, from humans to elephants to cats, defecate in the same amount of time: about 12 seconds. That’s despite the fact that the length of their rectums can vary widely. For instance, an elephant’s is 10 times the length of a cat’s (40 centimeters vs. four).

    The study suggests that the time is consistent because of mucus. The substance covering the the large intestine is very thin for small animals and much thicker for larger ones. According to the paper, mucus allows feces to move through the intestine “like a sled sliding through a chute.”

  • Tech’s Official in D.C. on Strategy for Science, Education Funding

    Robert Knotts, director of federal relations for Georgia Tech's Office of Government and Community Relations, talks strategy for dealing with the new administration and funding of academic science research.

  • Undergraduate Research Mentor Prize Launched in School of Chemistry and Biochemistry

    An award to recognize sustained engagement of graduate students and postdoctoral associates as undergraduate research mentors has been established in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The new award is funded by Gary B. Schuster and his wife, Anita. Gary Schuster is Vassar Woolley Professor Emeritus and Regents Professor in the College of Sciences. He is the 2017 recipient of Georgia Tech’s highest faculty honor, the Class of 1934 Distinguished Professor Award

  • “First Arrival” Hypothesis in Darwin’s Finches Gets Some Caveats

    Being first in a new ecosystem provides major advantages for pioneering species, but the benefits may depend on just how competitive later-arriving species are. That is among the conclusions in a new study testing the importance of “first arrival” in controlling adaptive radiation of species, a hypothesis famously proposed for “Darwin’s Finches,” birds from the Galapagos Islands that were first brought to scientific attention by the famous naturalist.
