Go Cougs!

A Washington State University research team led by Jacob Leachman and Konstantin Matveev received a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to test a new technology for liquid hydrogen fueling facilities.

A cross-disciplinary research team led by Subhanshu Gupta have developed an implantable, biofuel-powered sensor that runs on sugar and can monitor a body’s biological signals to detect, prevent and diagnose diseases.

Led by Ali Mehrizi‑Sani, Washington State University researchers have designed a new type of controller that addresses one of the biggest challenges of integrating renewable energy into the power system—maintaining a stable power supply.

Mary Rezac highlighted the partnerships between the aerospace industry and Voiland College in Lift Magazine.

The Daily Evergreen featured a story on Anurag Srivastava’s efforts to make power grids better at functioning in situations that might normally cause failure, such as a storm or cyber-attack.

The Daily Evergreen featured a story on a team of WSU professors and students led by Bernard Van Wie who will be implementing hands-on experiment kits within colleges across the U.S. to help students understand engineering concepts in a visual manner.

A story on twin brothers Joseph and Mario Guerrero’s involvement with Voiland College’s student clubs is featured on our home page.

Be Safe Cougs

Six-Week SR 26 Detour Starts October 15
Heading to or from the west side of the state? Bridge repairs and a 32-mile detour on SR 26 will affect your travel. Here are some tips for a safe and sane trip.

Plan ahead and allow extra time. The 32-mile detour, using state routes 17, 260 and US 395, adds about 14 miles and 15 additional minutes to the trip to Pullman compared to driving the closed portion of SR 26.

Stay alert. On an unfamiliar detour or in congested traffic, a moment’s distraction can lead to fender benders that further clog traffic.

Be patient. Staying calm and following the detour signs will keep people who travel moving as smoothly as possible.
