Kids’ Wildlife Preferences Differ from Island to Mainland
NC State research with children from the Bahamas and North Carolina helps us understand the next generation's priorities for wildlife conservation.
Researchers Control Soft Robots Using Magnetic Fields
Engineers have made a fundamental advance in controlling so-called soft robots, using magnetic fields to remotely manipulate microparticle chains embedded in soft robotic devices.
Words Matter When Math Teachers Describe Student Learning
Whether you remember being in the "high" or "low" math group in elementary school, you'll relate to new NC State research about describing students' math work.
Cookbooks Give Readers (Mostly) Bad Advice On Food Safety
A recent study finds bestselling cookbooks offer readers little useful advice about food safety, and much of the advice they do provide is inaccurate and not based on sound science.
Researchers Use Light to Remotely Control Curvature of Plastics
Researchers have developed a technique that uses light to get flat, plastic sheets to curve into 3-D structures, such as spheres, tubes or bowls.
A Hands-On Approach to Environmental Decisions
NC State scientists show how geospatial modeling can help provide faster feedback and better collaboration on complex issues.
New Approach Uses Ultrasound to Measure Fluid in the Lungs
A team of engineering and medical researchers has found a way to use ultrasound to monitor fluid levels in the lung, offering a noninvasive way to track progress in treating pulmonary edema.
Critical Thinking Instruction in Humanities Reduces Belief in Pseudoscience
A new study finds that teaching critical thinking skills in a humanities course significantly reduces student beliefs in “pseudoscience” that is unsupported by facts.
