Rising concentrations of zinc in a waterway on Colorado's Western Slope may be the result of climate change that is affecting the timing of annual snowmelt, says a new study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder.

CU Students to Demonstrate Innovations and Inventions at Dec. 4 Engineering Design Expo

December 01, 2010

From a portable device that calculates your ultraviolet exposure to a "recycling jukebox" that plays a song when you recycle a can, the University of Colorado at Boulder's Engineering Design Expo on Saturday, Dec. 4, will feature a variety of innovations and inventions to delight the community.

Online Science Project Launched by CU Nobel Laureate Receives $2.5 Million to Enhance Middle School Science

November 29, 2010

Two students tweak the ramp of a skateboarder in Energy Skate Park, sending her on a steep track that ends in a wild loop. They measure the energy of her motion as she goes. The skate park may sound like an after-school hangout, but it's a cutting-edge computer simulation that -- along with animated cousins like Electric Field Hockey and John Travoltage -- is a boon to students and science teachers alike.

'Gender Gap' in Physics Exams Reduced by Simple Writing Exercise, CU-Boulder Team Finds

November 25, 2010

Women are underrepresented and on average perform more poorly than men in introductory physics. But a recent study finds that this gap arises predominantly from differential preparation prior to college and psychological factors, rather than differences in ability.
