STEM jobs are rapidly growing and technology companies alone will need to fill more than 650,000 new jobs by 2018. FAU is directly addressing the national need to increase the number of STEM undergraduates.
The shift in climate is shifting turtles as well, because as the temperature of their nests change so do their reproduction patterns. Warmer conditions produce females and cooler conditions produce males.
Most robotic parts used today are rigid, have a limited range of motion and don't look lifelike. Inspired by nature and biology, a robotic finger designed at FAU looks, feels and works like the real thing.
