High School Students Win an Unusual Design Contest at NJIT http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-274.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-274.phpThu, 07 Jul 2005 00:00:00 -0400 A group of high school students from New Jersey, New York and Maryland won an architectural design competition held recently at NJIT with an unusual twist: The students had to design and build a meditation room out of nothing more than cardboard UPS boxes and tape. “They won because of the clarity of their design idea and elegant solution they came up with in the building process,” said Darius Sollohub, an assistant professor at the New Jersey School of Architecture who judged the student projects, which were part of the school's Summer Architecture Career Exploration Program.

On July 7 at 10 a.m., a jury of architects will examine the finished projects and select a winner.

Electronic Connectivity Isn’t All That Great, Warns Computer Guru at NJIT Talk http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-265.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-265.phpWed, 22 Jun 2005 00:00:00 -0400 “Although sophisticated electronics gadgets are making the world appear smaller, distance should not die,” said computer guru Darl Kolb earlier this week at NJIT. Kolb, a visiting professor from the University of Auckland Business School, New Zealand, championed redefining the notion of distance as the electronic world changes lives.  UPS Information Services, Mahwah, funded the lecture series sponsored by NJIT's College of Computing Sciences. “Improvements in communication technology cannot completely overcome human needs for personal space, privacy and disconnections from others,” Kolb said.
