Research Team in India Uses 3D Software and 3D Printing to Make Prosthetic Ear

As part of a college program, a team from the College of Engineering, Pune (CoEP) in India has developed unique software, which helped them make a 3D printed ear in just one week for 32-year-old Rucha (not her real name) from Kondhwa. Typically, it takes about a month to make an artificial ear, but thanks to the newly developed Osto3D software that the CoEP team developed, that fabrication time was greatly reduced.

Let girls play with robots to boost their confidence, study says

Researchers at the University of Washington have found that letting young children experiment with programming robots reduces the gender gap in interest and self-confidence relating to programming.   Study after study has revealed the extent to which women are underrepresented in STEM fields. Girls have been shown to start losing confidence in their mathematical, engineering and computing abilities at a very early age, so efforts to encourage more young women to consider STEM careers often target school students.   This promising University of Washington study suggests that fun activities which allow children to do some simple programming themselves could play…

ISRO Demonstrates Solar Hybrid Electric Car

Transportation has gained a great deal of importance in the growth of modern society by fulfilling the needs of mobility in everyday life. But vehicles using fossil fuels persistently bring serious problems to environment and life. Research and development activities constantly emphasize the acute need to develop high-efficiency, clean and safe transportation systems. Hence, the ideal transportation system should envisage zero-emission without any pollution. In this perspective, Solar and Electrical energy based hybrid vehicles provide the most effective and viable long-term solution by using renewable energy sources for mobility.
