Welcome!

Welcome to the Region 1 Page. Your source for all Region 1 news and updates.

When we attend National Conferences like NILA or the SHPE Conference, each Region has a chant. So, this is how it works.

Leader: Second to none!
Everyone: Region 1!!

We repeat this a total of three (3) times, and there you have the Region 1 Chant!

So, say it loud and proud!

  • Why pulsed sparks make for better ignition July 16, 2018
    Researchers have learned the mechanisms behind a means of improved ignition, helping to open the door to better performance in all types of combustion systems.
  • Single-celled architects inspire new nanotechnology July 16, 2018
    Scientists have designed a range of nanostructures resembling marine diatoms -- tiny unicellular creatures. To achieve this, they borrow techniques used by naturally-occurring diatoms to deposit layers of silica -- the primary constituent in glass -- in order to grow their intricate shells. Using a technique known as DNA origami, the group designed nanoscale platforms […]
  • Forget joysticks, use your torso to pilot drones July 16, 2018
    Your torso is more intuitive -- and more precise -- than joysticks for piloting drones, both simulated and real, according to a recent study. Work is already underway to implement this new body-machine-interface technology for search and rescue with drones.
  • Emotional robot lets you feel how it's 'feeling' July 16, 2018
    Researchers have developed a prototype of a robot that can express 'emotions' through changes in its outer surface. The robot's skin covers a grid of texture units whose shapes change based on the robot's feelings.
