NILA2014

The National Institute for Leadership Advancement for 2014 was held at UC San Diego this year. The future looks very promising with the excellent leaders that attended this conference. The variety of workshops and inspirational stories have given attendees excellent tools and inspiration to lead their chapters in this 2014-2015 fiscal year.

SHPE National has presented additional information regarding a proposed restructuring of our organization. Please look at the YouTube town hall meeting if you missed it.

    New research suggests there's wide variation in the risk that unmanned aircraft pose to people on the ground.
  • One step closer to lifelike robots September 19, 2017
    Researchers have developed a 3-D-printable synthetic soft muscle that can lift 1,000 times its own weight. The muscle has intrinsic expansion ability and, unlike previous artificial muscles, it does not require an external compressor or high voltage equipment, signaling a breakthrough in the creation of soft robots that can move independently. The new material also […]
