About the Emil Buehler Research Center for Engineering, Science and Mathematics
The Emil Buehler Research Center for Engineering, Science and Mathematics (EBRC) is a research center within the future Center for Collaborative Research at NSU, and is funded in part by a generous gift from the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust. It will be designed to support the small payload community by facilitating the development of space hardware designed by a new generation of microgravity researchers focused on conducting suborbital and orbital research on next-gen space launch vehicles. It will also serve as a training ground to advance teacher education and retention in the critical fields of aerospace, mathematics, science, technology and engineering. Researchers and engineers using this payload processing facility will be able to assemble, test and prepare for flight small to medium sized payloads, sounding rockets, low-gravity aircraft instrumentation and experiments and small orbital re-entry vehicles. Working in conjunction with community space organizations, the Center will be uniquely positioned to identify worthwhile microgravity research opportunities where the Center's state-of-the-art capabilities in design and fabrication can be utilized to bring exciting new concepts to rapid fruition.
NSU CENTER FOR COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH
â€śOur goal is to create an interdisciplinary facility that will inspire learners to continue their educational endeavors in the fields of scientific education -- aviation science, mathematics, engineering, earth science, physics, and other fields related to math, science and technology,â€ť said George Weaver, a trustee of The Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust.Â â€śUsing this facility, we hope to provide innovative introductions to the sciences that spark an interest in scientific, mathematical, and technological ideas for both faculty and students at every level.â€ť
â€śWe are very proud to house the new Emil Buehler Research Center for Engineering, Science and Mathematics, and offer it as a resource to the entire community,â€ť said NSU's past President now Chancellor Ray Ferrero, Jr., J.D. â€śIn conjunction with the work we are already doing in a variety of different research fields, this Center will help to create Floridaâ€™s the next generation of explorers and ensure that we have a pipeline of highly qualified professionals to lead our stateâ€™s growing science economy in the future.â€ť
