Raising Climate Awareness With A Raspberry Pi!

This post was written by Ariane Schoenweisner, part of the Maker-Clock and Climate Clock team, and senior studying Computer Engineering at Tandon At the beginning of Climate Week NYC on September 19, the Metronome Clock in Union Square was replaced by the Climate Clock, a countdown to the Earth warming by 1.5°C. This represents the timeline given by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change before the effects of climate change become even more…

Finding our Enthusiasts, Prototyping Update from Picklock

Picklock (formerly Skeleton Key), an NYU startup led by Mary Georgescu (Tisch MFA ‘20) & Connor Carson (Tisch MFA ‘20), share lessons learned through their participation in the Prototyping Fund. When we began our prototyping journey in the Fall of 2019 we wanted to answer the question: How can we abstract the process of lockpicking?​ Originally we wanted a hook for our adventure game, Skeleton Key. We believed it would be thematic and exciting if we could have a…

From Industrial Sized Bioreactor to Microfluidic Chips, Prototyping Update from NYU iGEM

NYU iGEM: Biosensors for Water Contamination, an NYU startup led by Ali Hasan (Tandon BS ‘20) and David Sung (Tandon BS ‘21), share lessons learned through their participation in the Prototyping Fund. We are Ali Hasan (Tandon ‘20) and David Sung (Tandon ‘21), members of the NYU iGEM team. iGEM (International Genetic Engineering Machine) is an organization dedicated to solving global issues in various fields- including agricultural,  environmental, and pharmaceutical- using synthetic biology. Every year, iGEM teams from…

Walkway’s generators could produce 200 kWh/day under subway turnstiles, Prototyping Update

Walkway, an NYU startup led by Benjamin Zhu (CAS BA ’23) & Max Trop (Tandon BS ’23), share lessons learned through their participation in the  Prototyping Fund Phase 1 We had no idea what would happen when we received help from the Prototyping Fund, what milestones we would achieve, and what would we learn. Both of us had and still have a large learning curve considering that we are still undergraduate freshmen. From the start, we immediately…
