Building 4 Amphitheater

The artificial hill platform has been in place for some time, but last week we saw boxed trees arriving on the site.  Heavy equipment also began shaping what appears to be a twin to the quad's informal oak shaded amphitheater in front of the Spilker building. 

Solar House 2013

Its been a month since construction began on the Solar House next to Terman Park.  Here's a recent photo.  No solar cells in evidence yet, but the house is recognizable now.  Good luck to the team!

  • The Sundial Returns

The Terman Engineering Library is offering five Mendeley Workshops during the Spring Term. The first session is Thursday, April 11 from 12noon to 1pm in Huang 219.  All of the sessions will cover how to add, organize, share and cite articles.  Both new and experienced users are welcome to attend.  The workshops are open to all Stanford students, faculty and staff. Sign-up for the workshops on the Science and Engineering Libraries Training site on Coursework. All of the workshops will be held in Huang 219, just down the hall from the Terman Library.  If none of the workshop times listed on the Coursework site are convenient for you, please contact the Terman Engineering Library for an individual session for you or your research group.

Sundial on the old Terman Building.

The sundial from the Terman Engineering Building has been re-mounted on the south side of  Huang Engineering Center near the main bike rack area next to the bridge.  The sundial was originally installed on the Terman Building in 1997 by Prof. Ronald N. Bracewell.  It was built by Prof. Bracewell and his son Mark.  Read more about the sundial in the March 1997 Civil Engineering at Stanford Newsletter on page 17.

Stanford Start.House Team

The walls are going up on the Stanford Start.Home, a student-designed and built zero-emissions house next to Terman Park. Walk by and see them at work or track the progress on Facebook.

Later this summer, the team will practice dismantling and re-assembling the house in preparation for the Solar Decathalon competition, which will be held in October in Irvine, Calif.
