Wearable Power Poster Wins NSF Visualization Challenge

February 7, 2014 — Wearable PowerThe team of Drexel University engineers who came up with a way to knit an energy storage device have now been recognized by the National Science Foundation for their skill in showing how they did it.

Fashion Design Alumna and Doctoral student Kristy Jost and Babak Ansori along with Majid Beidaghi, PhD, a postdoctoral research associate, all from the College of Engineering, earned first place in the NSF’s International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. Their entry was a poster entitled “Wearable Power,” which depicts their research in turning carbon materials into wearable energy storage devices.

“‘Wearable Power’ not only depicts the necessary science needed to create smart garments, it also points to the numerous challenges designers face in the implementation of such concepts, highlighting the need for multidisciplinary team work,” said Genevieve Dion, PhD, director of the Shima Seiki Haute Technology Laboratory and one of the team’s advisors along with Yury Gogotsi, PhD.
