The SafeHome senior design team has begun developing a promising and innovative wall panel system for use in disaster relief shelters. This modular wall panel is manufactured from light-gauge steel tracks, studs and sheets of various sheathing materials. Constructing and adapting two load frames will allow for testing of these modular panels, opening new avenues for continuing research and development. The goal is to design housing that can ease human suffering for people who are displaced from their homes, such as in the Syrian refugee crisis or following weather disasters. Funding was awarded to Dr. Dittenber and the design team for equipment and materials to conduct the proposed research.
The ultimate goal of the project is to develop a mechanical assistive device to stabilize prosthetic knee joints for transfemoral amputees (also called "above-knee" amputees), and help increase their mobility and safety. Dr. Sasaki's specific goals of this project include: 1) to design and refine a prosthetic-knee stabilizing device that is affordable and simple enough to be used in under-resourced settings; 2) to validate the efficacy of the device by comparing physiological and biomechanical data obtained from "simulated transfemoral amputee)" with and without using the device.
Studies have indicated a relationship between linking Emotional Intelligence to human performance, personal health, and resilience. Emotional knowledge, skills, and intelligence hold a major key to improving education and helping students, teachers, faculty, and student development professionals attain higher degrees of achievement, career success, leadership, and personal well-being. The grant awarded to Dr. Wharton's team would provide for the dissemination of the instrument to all incoming freshmen in fall 2017 and the accompanying research.
The grant awarded to Jodie Hilburn will allow her to accept the invitation extended by Hannam University to travel to Daejeon, S. Korea during the summer of 2017. She will explore the Korean Summer Studies Program (KSSP), develop corresponding/supplemental curriculum for LeTourneau based on the KSSP, and provide a faculty member chaperone to accompany the LeTourneau students participating in the KSSP.
The focus of Dr. Sheafer's project is to develop an assignment that accomplishes three goals: (1) the integration of faith and learning, (2) the development of metacognitive skills, and (3) the improvement of student learning outcomes as reflected by exam scores. The assignment is called "Question, Quotation and Reflection" (QQR) and is completed for daily assigned readings.
"Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise...something has evaded us...If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."
"For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them." (Ephesians 2:10)
