The STEM Pit Stop Challenge W02
How quickly can your pupils dismantle and rebuild (perfectly) a go-kart? Suitable for children (and grown-ups!)  of all ages, this STEM engineering challenge develops planning, communication and teamwork. Come and have a go for yourselves, and see how a simple wooden go-kart can be used to teach a vast range of STEM skills.

Frontier Science: Towards Making Matter Programmable T78
Computer scientists, nanoscientists, and engineers are more and more joining their forces towards the realisation of Programmable Matter, that is, matter that can algorithmically change its physical properties. They have already produced some first impressive outcomes. These include programmed DNA molecules that self-assemble into desired structures and large collectives of tiny identical robots that orchestrate resembling a single multi-robot organism. In parallel, an interesting theory is being developed to support this vision. Ambitious, long-term applications include molecular computers, collectives of nanorobots injected into the human circulatory system for monitoring and treating diseases, or even self-reproducing and self-healing machines. In this talk, we shall give an overview of this rapidly growing research area and discuss a recent, related initiative.

Frontier Science: Top-to-toe Solution - the three challenges facing electrical vehicles T91
A top-to-toe solution for switched reluctance motor (SRM) in electrical vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electrical vehicles (HEVs). This talk introduces the application of switched reluctance motors (SRM) in electrical vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electrical vehicles (HEVs). For SRM based EV/HEV application, there are three basic challenges: efficiency, reliability and performance. In this lecture, we give our solutions to those challenges. For efficiency, we proposed charging without charging-station solution, and integrated topology for HEV; for reliability, we proposed fault-tolerance topology, and phase current reconstruction technology; for performance, we improved SRM structure and improve direct torque control.

Frontier Science: Semiconductor Optoelectronics for Biological Sensing T114
Optical techniques are widely used for diagnostics in clinical settings, however the majority of optical bio-sensing and imaging techniques use large and expensive systems which are often complex to operate. Advances in microelectronics and optoelectronics allows the miniaturization of many of these techniques into so called Lab-on-a-chip devices, which tend to be portable, simple to use and low cost.
