Cartersville's Tellus Science Center’s Materials Exhibit Gets “Superhuman” Assistance from Georgia Tech

A new exhibit about “Superhero Materials” at Cartersville’s Tellus Science Museum received an assist from Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering. Mark Losego, associate professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), worked with the museum’s staff to frame the technical content and design of the exhibit.

Superhero Materials is largely interactive, featuring tactile and repeatable experiments that demonstrate materials science principles and display the unique properties of different materials such as shape memory alloys, transparent concrete, and fiber optic fabric.

“It was exciting to contribute to this exhibit. I do a lot of demos in my MSE classes now, but this was a chance to have thousands of people experience these materials science demos and possibly inspire a new generation of materials engineers,” said Losego.

Georgia Tech’s Economic Impact Grows to Nearly $4.2 Billion in Fiscal Year 2021

The University System of Georgia (USG) released its annual report highlighting the significant economic impact that Georgia’s higher education institutions had across the state between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021. The data calculated by the Selig Center for Economic Growth at the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business includes a breakdown of Georgia Tech’s benefit to the state.

The study shows that the USG contributed a total of $19.3 billion to Georgia’s economy during the 2021 fiscal year. Georgia Tech’s economic impact is the highest of any USG institution, with nearly $4.2 billion — a 4.6% increase from FY 2020.

Tech Faculty Serve on Statewide Sustainable Building Advisory Committee

Two Georgia Tech faculty are contributing to the newly created Sustainable Building Material Technical Advisory Committee, a group focused on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in our state. Russell Gentry, director of the Digital Building Lab in the College of Design, was appointed chair and will lead the effort to track carbon for trees used in construction. Wood building materials will then be part of the state’s carbon registry, which will allow carbon credits to be bought and sold.

The committee also relies on Valerie Thomas, the Anderson-Interface Chair of Natural Systems in the H. Milton School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, to determine net carbon benefit of sustainable materials versus conventional construction materials.

Tech Researchers Study Salt Marsh Grass on Georgia's Coast

Salt marshes cover much of Georgia’s coast and perform key "ecosystem services” for people. They clean the water, protect coastlines against storm surges, and provide a habitat for fish and shellfish. A new study by researchers in the Georgia Tech College of Sciences finds that a species of grass that dominates those marshes has bacteria in its roots and surrounding soil that affects productivity by providing nutrients, highlighting the importance of soil microorganisms in the entire ecosystem. The study was conducted at salt marshes near Sapelo and Skidaway Islands on the Georgia coast in 2018 and 2019.
