Game of Thrones, Pops with the President, and Spring Game.
Atomic beam collimators are mostly found in physics labs,
where they shoot out atoms in a beam that produces exotic quantum phenomena and
has properties that may be useful in precision technologies. By
shrinking collimators from the size of a small appliance to fit on a
fingertip, Georgia Tech researchers want to make the technology available to
engineers advancing devices like atomic clocks or accelerometers, a component
found in smartphones. Photo taken April 4 by Christopher Moore.
Georgia Tech students and faculty watch Game of
Thrones for more than its entertainment value. Students in the
Prototyping eNarrative Lab (PeN Lab), working with Janet Murray, the Ivan Allen
College Dean's Professor, built an application
to help viewers track the various plots of the show and the fates of its
characters. Photo taken April 5 by Rob Felt.
Professor Oliver Brand, School of Electrical and Computer
Engineering, shows off his regalia for a story on
commencement regalia. It was given to him in 2007 by his Ph.D. advisor, who
wore it in the 150th anniversary celebration of ETH Zurich, Brand's alma mater, in
2005. Photo taken April 3 by Rob Felt.

The CDAC/WST Menstrual Product Program, a pilot program
offering free menstrual products across campus, is the 2019
Gift to Tech winner. The project will receive approximately $30,000 for
programmatic support. Pictured at the Gift to Tech reception are members of the
Cultural Diversity and Affairs Committee (CDAC) and the Center for the Study of
Women, Science, and Technology (WST) who played key roles in developing and
promoting the project — (L-R): Alex Cosado, Jack Sheldon, Katherine Bennett, Carol
Colatrella, Niveda Shanmugam, William Harrer, Kyle Smith, and Mary Lynn
Realff. Photo taken April 16 by Meera Rajagopalan.
Georgia Tech's 22nd Annual Earth Day Festival included entertainment,
freebies, and 90 information booths with exhibitors sharing ways to remember that
Earth's future is in our hands. Photo taken April 19 by Diana Tiernan.

a new type of origami that can morph from one pattern into a different one,
or even a hybrid of two patterns, instantly altering many of its structural
characteristics. For example, origami-based structures used for acoustic systems -
which are already capable of expanding and contracting to increase or decrease the
volume of the sound response - could go one step further, changing how they bend
to potentially offer an even greater range of resonant responses. Photo by Allison
President G.P. "Bud" Peterson and first lady Val Peterson
were greeted by nearly 2,000 members of the Tech community who gathered at the
Student Center for Pops
with the President. The event, which had music, games, and popsicles, was a
thank-you to the Petersons for their service to the Institute. Photo taken April
24 by Rob Felt.
The Honorable Mark Esper, the Secretary of the Army, visited
the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) to see GTRI's portfolio of advanced
technologies and demonstration capabilities. The April 25 visit was hosted by Lora
Weiss, interim senior vice president and director of GTRI, and Lynn Durham,
associate vice president and chief of staff for the Office of the President.

Expanding Career, Education, and Leadership Opportunities
is a four-year program for students with intellectual disabilities. Participants
audit classes alongside traditional Tech students. Students completing the program
receive two certificates: one in academic enrichment, social fluency, and career
exploration; and another certificate in social growth, leadership and career
development. Seven students are graduating
in the inaugural class this spring: Carrie Rose Crayton, Alex Goodman,
Rashad Isaac, Natalie Jackson, Faith Roman, Frankie Sanders, and Kurt Vogel. Photo
