The University of Delaware's Summer Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences, funded by the National Science Foundation, engages students from across the U.S. in exploring the frontiers of brain research
Technology & Engineering
Technology and Engineering bridge the gap between what the mind can imagine and what the laws of nature allow. While scientists seek to discover what is not yet known, engineers apply fundamental science to design and develop new devices and systems—technology—to solve societal problems. Technological and engineering innovations then return the favor by affecting human—as well as other animal species'—the ability to control and adapt to their natural environments.
