    SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts, problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications.

  • Gershon Benjamin: Modern Master

    Beginning April 27, 2015

    12:00 AM-12:00 AM

    The exhibition is on display in the Rincliffe Gallery on the third floor of Main Building at 3141 Chestnut St. from April 27th through August 7th. The Rincliffe Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Gallery is free and open to the public.

    • Everyone

    In the 1920s, the Romanian-born, Montreal-educated Gershon Benjamin arrived in New York City, and was soon befriended by a group of progressive artists who favored European modernism to the popular American Scene and Regionalist art of the day. Milton Avery was a member of this group, and he and Benjamin became close and life-long friends. Their circle included Rothko, Gottlieb, Gorky, Sloan and the Soyer brothers, among others. Exhibiting together, they were labeled "expressionists" and praised for their individualistic style and use of color. The Rincliffe Gallery show will feature more than 60 works by the artist – portraits, still lifes, landscapes and city scenes – in oil and watercolor, representing all periods of Benjamin’s prolific seven-decade career.

  • A Comparison of Stormwater Management Practices in Ireland and the United States - Andrea L. Welker

    Thursday, May 7, 2015

    4:00 PM-5:00 PM

    Hill Seminar Room LeBow Engineering Building Room 240 31st and Market Streets

    • Everyone

    2015 Engineering Alumni Lecture

    Andrea L. Welker, PhD, PE
    Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Villanova University
    Associate Director, Villanova Urban Stormwater Partnership

    A Comparison of Stormwater Management Practices in Ireland and the United States

    Low Impact Development (LID) or Green Infrastructure (GI) stormwater practices are gradually gaining acceptance in the United States. These practices are also being used to control stormwater in Ireland, where they are dubbed Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). This talk will explore the innovative, sustainable techniques that are being used to restore the hydrologic cycle, which was disrupted by development, in both Ireland and in the Philadelphia area. This talk will draw upon the experiences and observations of the author during her sabbatical at the National University of Ireland – Galway.

    Most of Dr. Welker’s research focuses on studying the geotechnical aspects of stormwater control measures (SCMs) including rain gardens and permeable pavements. Specifically, she has performed a side-by-side comparison of porous asphalt and pervious concrete and has examined many aspects of rain gardens including infiltration, evapotranspiration, soil mix designs, and the effect this type of SCM has on the water table.

    This annual lecture is made possible by the generosity of Wesley O. Pipes and Jane Pipes.
