On Sept 10, 2015, Our start-up venture, Elegus Techniologies, graduated with great honors from the first in Detroit TechStar
Mobility incubator. Elegus Technologies transfers the invention of aramid nanofibers composites into high capacity high discharge rate batteries
Lesson of experimental chemistry in Go with the Wind Middle School in Ypsilanti, MI.
The students learned about how the atoms are connecting into molecules. The bonding of atoms of carbon and oxygen is associated with release of energy that is observed as heat. We investigated thermodynamics of such reaction by burning a piece of Continue Reading »
