SAMPE DFW & South Texas Tour of The Baylor Research and Innovation Collaborative

 

Friday, February 5, 2016 from 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
 

Please join us for the first joint meeting of the DFW and South Texas SAMPE Chapter to be held at the Baylor Research and Innovation Collaborative (BRIC) in Waco, TX.

Meeting Flyer is HERE

Researchers in the BRIC's Advanced Composite Technology (ACT) laboratory are at the forefront of research and development in these amazing, high strength-to-weight materials. This nexus of ACT expertise has drawn recognition from such highly selective research agencies as NASA and the Air Force Research Labs which, in addition to leading technology companies, have tapped Baylor researchers to lead and conduct composite research on their behalf.

The BRIC is a multidiscipline research and academic facility housed inside a renovated 304,000-sf tire manufacturing plant, designed to break down or inhibit silos from forming while being friendly to commercialization, industry, workforce development, and international collaboration. The meeting will begin with a presentation by faculty members and students followed by a tour of the BRIC.
