DES teachers Rami White and Kathleen Shirley went to the aquarium for training on climate issues and with the tools and resources provided, they are teaching their sixth through eighth grade students how to make changes to help support their…
(University College London) A new bendable supercapacitor made from graphene, which charges quickly and safely stores a record-high level of energy for use over a long period, has been developed and demonstrated by UCL and Chinese Academy of Sciences researchers.
(Ruhr-University Bochum) Contrary to theoretical predictions, oxygen inactivates biocatalysts for energy conversion within a short time, even under a protective film. A research team of the Resolv Cluster of Excellence at Ruhr Universität Bochum (RUB) has found out why: Hydrogen peroxide forms on the protective film. The addition of iodide salts to the electrolyte can prevent this from happening and considerably extend the life of the catalysts.
(University of Bath) Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a revolutionary desalination process that has the potential to be operated in mobile, solar-powered units.
Dyson, a company best-known for its innovative line of vacuums and fans, is apparently also interested in providing urbanites with a portable way to filter air pollution. The company recently filed a patent in the UK for a pair of…
Girls in War Zone Find Their Power On Skateboards; Documentary About Them Takes Home the Oscar (Watch)
Thousands of at-risk youth—particularly girls—around the world have been introduced to skateboarding as a means of teaching them leadership and education.
(Kanazawa University) Kanazawa University researchers used a novel technique to deposit TiO2 layers for efficient perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The inkjet-deposited layers applied at an angle of 45°, without the need for a vacuum, were uniform and their thickness could be controlled by manipulating coating times. The resulting PSCs had an efficiency of 13.19%, making the technique promising as a simple, low-cost method that could be easily scaled-up for commercial production of efficient PSCs.
