Highly sensitive nanosensors to prevent potential catastrophes

Engineering, IT and aviation
Published
Griffith University researchers are creating tiny high-tech chips that will detect problems in ageing gas and oil pipelines, preventing potential catastrophic events. A team from Griffith’s Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre is developing the novel, low-cost and highly sensitive compact sensors that will detect and monitor changes in harsh environments, such as strain, pressure, flow rate, […]

Scientists share STEM in children’s books!

Published
Griffith University scientists hope to encourage more students into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through the creation of engaging children’s books. Griffith’s That’s Rad! Science project was among 28 new ‘diverse and exciting’ Advance Queensland Engaging Science Grants recipients, sharing in almost $270,000 to increase STEM skills and engagement. The project will support the creation […]

Cold is the best way to catch crabs

Engineering, IT and aviation
Published
Fishermen have been thrown a line with new Griffith University research that has found they can catch more spanner crab in cooler waters. Previous studies thought catch rates were connected to warmer temperatures or had no relationship at all. PhD researcher David Spencer found that upwelling events that cause the water to become cooler could […]
