Smart phones are capable of giving us directions when we’re lost, sending photos and videos to our friends in mere seconds, and even helping us find the best burger joint in a three-mile radius. But thanks to UH Cullen College of Engineering researchers, smart phones may soon be boasting another very important function: diagnosing diseases in real time.

The UH Cougarnauts

Last November, we told you about a team of UH Cullen College of Engineering students who were chosen to take a coveted ride in NASA’s reduced gravity aircraft, known as the “Vomit Comet.” The UH “Cougarnauts” team members were chosen as part of an elite group to participate in NASA’s Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program, where they performed an assigned experiment during 25-second bouts of weightlessness inside the aircraft. The UH students studied the effects of freezing water in zero-gravity conditions.

MEET TEAM PRIMER…A group of mechanical engineering undergrads at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering who will be competing in the upcoming Shell Eco-marathon in Houston from April 25th to 27th. The 12-member team is currently building an ultra-energy efficient, battery-powered vehicle from the ground up. Team Primer will enter their vehicle, named “EcoPrimer,” under the marathon’s “prototype” class, focusing on maximizing the car’s efficiency rather than the driver’s comfort. The team members’ tireless work on “EcoPrimer” will double as their senior Capstone Design projects, the penultimate project for all graduating seniors at the Cullen College.
