"It was wonderful to partner with UAH for this workshop," says Deborah Hester, a sixth-grade teacher at Hampton Cove Middle School. "The Department's faculty members were welcoming and really went over and above to make our time meaningful. I have even scheduled a follow-up field trip to the library for my advanced students, and they are so excited to be coming to campus!"
The History Department at UAH recently hosted a free, one-day training workshop to help local teachers prepare for National History Day, a nationwide academic competition that challenges students in grades 6-12 to develop research and critical thinking skills through the study of history. The event was facilitated by Joel Walker, an education specialist for the National Archives at Atlanta, and Deborah Hester, a sixth-grade teacher at Hampton Cov...

"We have already had a great experience aligning study projects and hands-on work at RadioBro Corporation," says Dr. Tauerschmidt. "This could be repeated on a similar scale working together with Bremen industry partners. If all goes well, we can exchange young potential interns on both sides from November this year to September next year."
Last week, a delegation of seven representatives from Hochschule Bremen City University of Applied Sciences (HSB) spent two days with faculty, researchers, and staff from UAH and other city stakeholders in an effort to strengthen the Bremen-Alabama relationship and to expand internship opportunities available to students from both institutions.

"As part of this past summer’s REU, we got to see what researchers do in a national lab and in a commercial one,” says Thomas Reyes a UAH junior chemistry major.
If one day in the not-so-distant future you find yourself driving a car that was 3-D printed, you may have Thomas Reyes to thank. UAH junior chemistry major spent the summer conducting research on increasing interfacial adhesion in the fused deposition modeling of polymers – specifically the kind used in 3-D printed cars like the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Shelby Cobra.

Dr. Ryan Weber and co-researchers Semih Dinc, a UAH computer science graduate student, and Matthew Williams, a UAH English graduate student, studied how the use of different media to present information on NASA's James Webb Telescope project would affect levels of support for the project and for NASA in general.
Even though a study on the persuasive power of different types of media by a UAH assistant professor of English had a surprising result in the interactive age, interactive content still proved its power of persuasion.

Goodson is happy with the decision he made to come to UAH. "It has allowed me to explore language learning in a way I wouldn't have been able to otherwise, and it has given me the freedom to experience what it's like to live in another culture as a regular person," Goodson says. "With the Arabic I know now, I'll be able to interact with people anywhere the government chooses to deploy me in the Middle East."
Adam Goodson already knows exactly what he wants to do when he graduates from UAH: serve in the Middle East as a member of the U.S. Army's Special Forces. That's why the senior history major spent this past summer in Meknes, Morocco, studying Arabic as a Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) recipient - and why he's now spending the fall semester in Amman, Jordan, with AMIDEAST's education abroad program. "It's an asset to the military, being able ...

"They can test the camera or they can simulate the camera. This means they can have more control during a test than when they're using the real instrument, which is somewhat cumbersome," explained Mike Stewart, a UAH ESSC principal research engineer.
Two pieces of hardware designed to test the next three Geostationary Lightning Mappers (GLM) before they launch have been completed in UAH's Earth System Science Center and shipped to Lockheed Martin.

"For the three community colleges, one student each will be selected to start the CyberCorps Scholarship for Service at the community college. These students will then transfer to UAH to complete degrees in computer engineering, computer science, or information systems," says Dr. Tommy Morris, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of UAH's Center for Cybersecurity Research and Education.
Full cybersecurity scholarships have been awarded to 10 students at UAH from its five-year, $4.2 million National Science Foundation (NSF) CyberCorps Scholarships for Service program.
