Engineering and Physics News and Achievements
Peter Licona, assistant professor of PK-12 STEM education, presented “Translanguaging to Foster an Inclusive Learning Environment” at the Pennsylvania National Association of Multicultural Education conference at Dickinson College.
Licona and Alexandria K. Poole, assistant professor of philosophy, presented on Scientific and Ethical Literacy at the 2017 Lancaster Learns Conference.
Kurt DeGoede, professor of engineering, and Kelly Seymour ’12 had significant media attention for research conducted on “Cellular Telephone Dialing Influences Kinematic and Spatiotemporal Gait Parameters in Healthy Adults.” The research was published in the Journal of Motor Behavior earlier this year. Canada’s Global News and the UK’s Telegraph, Daily Mail and IFL Science ran articles on the research.
Michael Silberstein, professor of philosophy; Mark Stuckey, professor of physics; and Timothy McDevitt, professor of mathematics and department chair, received a contract with Oxford University Press for their book, “End of the Mechanical Universe.” This book will argue for a revolution in fundamental physics, moving from dynamical explanation in the mechanical universe to adynamical explanation in the block universe.
