Henry Grosman and Babak Bryan's "Fractured Bubble" design was recently selected as the "People's Choice Sukkah of New York City" in the 2010 Sukkah City Design Competition. Grosman is currently working as an architect in New York and teaches a design studio and a seminar at NJIT's College of Architecture and Design. The temporary structure, which was created by architecture students in NJIT's FABLAB, will be on display in Union Square until October 2. >>
Daniel Boston, a doctoral student in NJIT's College of Computing Sciences, provided technological advice to supplement the legal and educational expertise provided by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation Mock Trial Committee for the 29th Annual Vincent J. Apruzzese High School Mock Trial Competition this month. The case deals with distracted driving/walking resulting from the use of wireless electronic communication devices. "It was a good experience working with the Mock Trial Committee in a technical capacity. This provided a wonderful opportunity to evaluate an all-too-real scenario and help shape the technological and technical aspects of the case toward that same level of realism. I am grateful to know that the assistance I provided has been useful to the Mock Trial Committee, and I thank my advisor, Dr. Cristian Borcea, for initially forwarding this opportunity to me." “We greatly appreciate NJIT's input in this year's mock trial case, which we hope will be not only academically challenging but will help to change driving habits and prevent tragic accidents,” said Richard J. Badolato, Esq., president of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation. >>
Nine students in NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering and the Otto H. York Department of Chemical, Biological and Pharmaceutical Engineering participated in the 2010 New Jersey Chapter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) Student Poster Competition on April 26. They were: Ezinwa Elele, Stephanie Masotti, Sara Mina, Shilan Motamedvaziri, Miraat Patel, Fernando Rivas, Ramana Susarla, Yimin Wang, and Min Yang. Wang took first place with a poster entitled: "Toward a More Reliable USP Dissolution Testing Apparatus II" and also received the highest score among all the participants in this competition. Stephanie Masotti took second place with a poster entitled "Expanded and Simplified Method To Produce In Vitro Axon Stretch Injury." Wang and Masotti will compete in the National Student Poster Competition in November 2010 at the ISPE National Meeting in Orlando, Florida. >>
Each year, the NJIT Newark College of Engineering (NCE) gives the Innovation in Design Award to an engineering student who excels as a designer.

NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch addressed student teams representing 30 New Jersey public and private high schools last week at the 2010 Panasonic Creative Design Challenge finals at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. For this year's challenge, teams designed and built a remote-controlled robotic recycling plant to help sort through debris in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. NJIT makes significant contributions to this science and engineering technology competition: Three NJIT student interns develop the Challenge, while NJIT staff score the written reports as well as provide judges for the performance and oral presentations.   >>
The ASCE Student Chapter at NJIT received first place in every competition that they entered at this weekend's 2010 Metropolitan Regional Conference held at FDU in Teaneck.
