Inspired collaborations: undergraduates feel empowered by hands-on discovery.

To assess the impact of the Trinity Center for the Sciences and Innovation (CSI), EYP conducted surveys of students and faculty before and after construction of the Center. More

EYP's Toni Loiacano shares pre- and post-occupancy data with Tradeline about Trinity University's Center for the Sciences & Innovation (CSI) in San Antonio, Texas. Studies indicate that the new CSI is attracting more students from all departments to the building, boosting integration between science and non-science majors, and increasing interest in STEM studies among incoming students at a rate of 50 percent.

In a new article for Tradeline Inc., EYP's Chris Baylow and Jeff Schantz share how today’s scientific researchers are improving their productivity, research outcomes, and technological advances by using the knowledge of many disciplines. This emerging field of “convergence science” goes beyond traditional collaboration to the much larger intellectual intersection of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences, and other disciplines, plus big data.

Amidst research and reports showing that a third of U.S. post-secondary institutions are struggling financially, many of them see a highly competitive STEM program as a key to their future success and survival. More

Throughout 2015, Metropolis’s publisher and editor in chief, Susan S. Szenasy, led the Metropolis Think Tank series of conversations on the seismic cultural shifts reshaping our society and the importance of injecting a new humanism into design and architecture in order to better deal with emerging challenges. In "Maker Culture and The Human Factor", Susan spoke with EYP about the process of creating educational spaces that foster engaged, hands-on learning and making.

This article from High Profile explores what makes makerspaces such engaging learning environments for students from all disciplines. Drawing on her lab planning and STEM research experience, the author explains the Think/Model/Make design concept with examples from her favorite makerspace - Trinity University's unique innovation center, "The Cube." 

A facility designed to engage students immediately in active science, using modern equipment that supports authentic research experiences. More

Engineering Education is experiencing a reinvention. More than ever before, colleges and universities are employing experiential learning paradigms to enhance and solidify learning.
