Topic: 
What Do I DO with Sadness?
Abstract / Description: 

What if there was an app on your device that could help you to process (however slowly) new information you received of loss, disappointment and failure, but in doing so, it could also move you (chaotically at times) towards healing and acceptance? Would you download and use it? Grief is this ancient “app” that functions to help us integrate heavy, unwanted feelings of loss into our body, mind (thought, feeling AND intuition) and spirit. After some time, it allows us to heal and enables us to approach life as a whole being enriched by this unwanted adversity. In this session, we will download the schematics for the grieving process (aka understand the “grief journey”) and we will consider the following questions: What is the point of sadness? Is grief something I DO? How does this relate to emotional intelligence? For answers to these questions and more, please join us.

REU Student Application Deadline

Topic: 
EE undergraduate apps due for REU 2021
Abstract / Description: 

Electrical Engineering REU 2021 Student Application

This is a full-time, ten-week summer internship. For *EE REU 2021*, the program will run from *6/21/21-8/27/21*. With the advisement of an EE department faculty advisor and a graduate student mentor or Research Associate, REU interns will have the opportunity to not only conduct research, but also gain valuable experience in professional networking, project presentation, and most importantly, have fun doing it. The program provides participants with a stipend (amount TBD).

Are you eligible?
Students must declare EE as their undergraduate major if they participate in REU. With the exception of EE co-terms, in order to be eligible, students may not be seniors when they apply. In the event the number of applicants exceeds the number of available project positions, preference will be given to first time participants. Stanford internally funds the REU Program and as such, it is open to Stanford undergraduate students only. If you are not a Stanford student, please refer to Stanford's Office of Science Outreach <http://oso.stanford.edu/programs/audiences/9-undergraduates-from-other-schools/categories/5-research-internships> for additional research opportunities. Students are required to participate for the full 10 week program.

How to apply:
To apply, please visit the REU website at https://ee.stanford.edu/academics/reu/how-to-apply. The website provides detailed instructions on how to fill out the application. Due to the complex student/project matching process, once the application is submitted, you will not be able to make changes.

Before you fill out the application and submit your project preferences, please review the REU 2021 Project Descriptions at https://gradapps.stanford.edu/REU/.  You will be allowed to select UP TO EIGHT projects you are interested in (including your first/primary choice). First choice preferences are optional. If you pick more than eight choices, the dept. will randomly select 8 from your choices. If you have any questions, please email reu@ee.stanford.edu.

Additionally, you will need to answer several questions on the application and submit an unofficial transcript with your application, which you can obtain from AXESS. Applications missing any important information will not be reviewed, so please be prepared to complete the entire application.

REU application link: https://gradapps.stanford.edu/REU/

**Please note that if the form was incorrectly filled out, the attachments will disappear when the form is reloaded; therefore, you will need to upload the attachments again before you submit.*

Application Deadline:** Monday, February 1, 2021.

This deadline is firm and exceptions cannot be made. When the applications are being reviewed, project advisers and mentors may contact applicants to discuss individual projects in detail. Acceptance notifications will begin soon after the deadline.

If you have further questions or concerns about the REU Program, please see REU Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ <https://ee.stanford.edu/academics/reu/FAQ>) or contact Marisa Cheng at reu@ee.stanford.edu.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project workshop

Topic: 
Weekly Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Workshops for the EE125 art project are Mondays 1-4PM in Packard 001 (Wednesday if Monday is a holiday).

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EE department are encouraged to participate.

The art project to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department is coming along nicely. The piece will consist of 50-100 shapes hanging in the stairwell along the white interior wall and exterior glass in a stroke that starts in a point, broadens in the center, then comes to a point again. The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.

This quarter, the project is finalizing all of the engineering decisions of an individual shape and building them. The weekly workshops will focus on hands-on building activities to help with this. The current schedule of workshop projects is:

1/6 Strategic planning
1/13 Program wing animations
1/22 Make vacuum-formed bodies
1/27 Install body LEDs
2/3 Build wing mechanisms
2/10 Build communication circuit boards
2/19 Build wings
2/24 Install wings
3/2 Full assembly

Workshops meet 1-4PM in Packard 001.

This timeline may likely change a little as we encounter unforeseen problems. But generally speaking, you can show up to a workshop and expect to be able to take part in building the piece. For the latest schedule, please refer to the link below.
