E2SHI’s Annual Symposium: Innovations in Managing Climate Risk
Apr 8 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

The Johns Hopkins Environment, Energy, Sustainability & Health Institute (E²SHI) invites you to an interactive session led by Pablo Suarez from the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre on climate change and disaster response, and to explore how to bridge science, policy and practice. The title of the presentation is “Innovations in Managing Climate Risk: Reimagining humanitarian and development work.”

Pablo SuarezA light lunch will be served starting at 11:45 am, and Michael Klag, Dean of the Bloomberg School of Public Health, will give opening remarks.

The symposium is free and open to all Johns Hopkins faculty, staff and students, as well as community members.

RSVP by April 5 to attend.

Mousetraps, rubber bands and bowling balls — and not batteries or motors — will provide the power for devices designed by teams of freshman mechanical engineering students competing in this annual contest. Designed by teams of two or three students, the devices must roll across the Shriver Hall stage and then launch a small projectile over a dozen rows of seats before landing on or near a target. Before each launch, a 3.65-lb. duckpin bowling ball will be rolled down a ramp onstage to propel each team’s device toward the stage edge.

In this required course, students learn about design approaches, potential and kinetic energy, friction, prototyping methods and other topics relevant to mechanical engineering.

“Bye Bye Blue Jay”: Freshmen Experiences in Mechanical Engineering competition
Dec 7 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Two mousetraps and three rubber bands — no batteries or motors —  will provide the power for launching devices and vehicles designed by teams of freshman mechanical engineering students competing in this lively annual contest. Designed by teams of two or three students, the devices must launch a Blue Jay Beanie Baby across the stage at Shriver Hall.

Arturo A. Brito, Stefan Arnold and Kevin LeBlanc of the winning Perpetual Motion Squad.
