Playwright Dipika Guha on?Mechanics of Love,?and the Relationship Between Love and Logic  from UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies  (2017/11/18 4:48) 
TDPS: How would you describe Mechanics of Love ? DG: It?s a bit like a carousel. [Laughs.] Four people with differing points of view find themselves on this love carousel, and they have to negotiate being on the ride and also being with each other on that ride. Today, that?s how I?m thinking about it! TDPS: What inspired you to write this play? DG: All of my plays come out of a confluence of interests and things that I was thinking about at the time. With this particular play, I had just come out of a long-term collaboration with scientists who were engaged in the incredible difficult task of quantifying gender bias — something that is felt, but is so nebulous and hard to quantify. So they were looking for ways to quantify it, and I was responding to their research and writing scenes that were hopefully doing more than illustrating what was happening — trying to get to the unspoken nature of what it is like to both experience and have bias, and how it ...
Agnes d?Entremont Featured for Open Problem Library ProjectAgnes screenshot from BCcampus video 2  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/11/10 7:37) 
Dr. Agnes d’Entremont, an instructor in Mechanical Engineering, and her colleague Dr. Jonathan Verrett, an instructor in Chemical and Biological Engineering, were featured in a video by BC Campus for their work with an open-source online homework system. The video highlights how creating problems for the WeBWork Open Problem Library (OPL) improves their students’ learning experience and reduces financial barriers. WeBWork is an open-source online homework system for math and science courses that provides students with immediate, detailed feedback. They are allowed to make changes to their answer, which promotes learning. WeBWorks also has  individualized versions of problems, allowing instructors to encourage students to work together – each student has a similar but unique problem, and much develop their own answer to their individual version of the problem. For instructors, WeBWork has over 30,000 problems in an Open Problem Library that can be used in math ...
UC Berkeley presents?Mechanics of Love,?a playful, poetic new comedy by Dipika Guha  from UC Berkeley Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies  (2017/11/1 6:10) 
Berkeley, CA – October 2017 – UC Berkeley?s Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies (TDPS) continues its 2017-18 season with Mechanics of Love , a wryly poetic and playful comedy that questions the laws governing who and how we love, and the cost of making sense of it all. Written by rising playwright Dipika Guha, this fast-paced four-person production will be presented in an intimate in-the-round configuration on the Zellerbach Playhouse stage on the UC Berkeley campus. Directed by Christine Nicholson, Mechanics of Love runs November 16-19. Tickets are $13 to $20 and can be purchased online through the TDPS box office (tdps.berkeley.edu/events/mechanics-of-love/) or at the door.  Sometimes, the business of beginning a new world involves forgetting the old one. But when you forget your wife to marry a ballerina with an artificial spine?and the ballerina forgets you to marry your fashionable wife?and then they both fall in love wit ...
Mech Department Tours?2017/18 dates now posted!Olson-talking  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/10/13 2:52) 
Interested in seeing what goes on in our labs and student spaces? The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers public tours throughout the year. Our student-led tours typically take 1.5 hours, and include a tour around our facilities. We typically stop at two labs and two student teams, where you will learn a bit about the research done in Mechanical Engineering and some of the great design opportunities that our students have. At the end of the tour there is an optional half-hour advising session where we will have program advisers to answer any questions you may have about the department or UBC Engineering. Check out this year’s tour dates here.
Elizabeth Croft Discusses the Future of Robotics in CBC InterviewDSC_3420  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/10/12 4:57) 
Elizabeth Croft and student making adjustments to “Charlie”. Following the release of the new Blade Runner movie, MECH professor and Director of the the Collaborative Advanced Robotics and Intelligent Systems Lab (CARIS), Elizabeth Croft gave a short interview with CBC on the future of robotics. In her interview, Croft discusses how to maintain a friendly relationship between robots and humans, especially amid worries that automation means a decline in “human” jobs. The key, she says, is not to lament the loss of low-wage jobs, but embrace how this shift will help to maintain an overall better standard of living and create more “good quality, complex and interesting jobs.” This in turn, will lead to increased Canadian productivity as labour is focused in more complex, higher-value jobs. The article also explores Canada’s unique stance in the worldwide discussion on roboethics and the current work of Canadian companies that specialize in ...
APSC 366?The Art of the Possible: Engineering for Non-Engineersapsc 366 images horizontal  from UBC Mechanical Engineering  (2017/10/6 3:12) 
Interested in the art of engineering but don?t have the tech background? Need to fulfill a science requirement but want something that still allows you to think through social issues? APSC 366 was designed for you. Join four Engineering faculty members from a range of disciplines in exploring engineering practice, technologies, and products, and their connections to social, legal, and environmental realms. Learn the answers to questions like: How can we modify carbon to reduce climate change? Why do cell phones explode? What happens if your hip replacement gets recalled? How much energy is in a litre of gasoline, and what does it mean for the range of your car? Open to upper year students in Arts, Education, and the Sauder School of Business, this course is structured as four modules, each focused on a particular technology: carbon capture, smartphones, hip replacement, and engines . Assessment will consist of a test and assignment for each module, plus a final project (no ...
