Due to overwhelming interest, this presentation will now take place in Shriver Hall. For those unable to attend, this lecture will be live streamed on Johns Hopkins University’s Ustream channel.

Steven Chu, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of physics and professor of molecular and cellular physiology at Stanford University, will deliver the Carolyn and Edward Wenk, Jr. Lecture in Technology and Public Policy on Tuesday, September 6.

In a talk titled “Climate Change and a Low-Cost Path to Clean Energy,” Chu will describe new data on climate change, the rapidly changing energy landscape, and the potential and challenges in the transition to clean energy sources.

Chu was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to laser cooling and atom trapping. He was the first scientist to hold a White House Cabinet position, serving as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy from January 2009 to April 2013.

The 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture
May 4 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture @ 210 Hodson Hall

The Department of Mechanical Engineering hosts Maria Oden, director of the Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen at Rice University, for the 34th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture. Oden will present a lecture titled “Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen at Rice University: Lessons learned in the early years.”

Abstract

Maria Oden will present the short seven-year history of the Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen, at Rice University, where students are exposed to unique hands-on design experiences and opportunities to test and carry ideas to their intended point of application. An overview of the facility itself and how it fosters design, prototyping, and technology evaluation will be provided. This presentation will also provide a review of the goals and longer term impact of the program.

The OEDK has truly shifted the culture of engineering design at Rice, bringing together students with various perspectives to collaborate on multidisciplinary teams. Undergraduates using the OEDK represent the eight different engineering disciplines, as well as architecture, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Since its inception in 2009, use of OEDK has increased from about 250 to over 1200 undergraduate students annually. Examples of real-world design challenges and their solutions, from the energy industry to medical technologies, will be presented. Specific examples and demonstrations from projects in the past several years will be used to illustrate major points in the presentation. Data demonstrating the growth and impact of this new education paradigm will also be shared.
