Open sesame: Making sesame seeds a growth area in global food production
The humble sesame seed has traditionally been unprofitable and difficult to harvest because it produces a low yield. A high percentage of sesame seeds grown are not suitable for human consumption. Now a Hebrew University of Jerusalem researcher has been awarded for producing a new elite sesame cultivar with enhanced yield and seed quality suitable for modern agricultural practice. This contributes to more sustainable agriculture and helps prevent the development of herbicide-resistant weeds.

NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering researchers make innovative use of LEGO
With even preschoolers using computers and video games, students at all levels now expect to modify and control their own experiments and receive immediate feedback. Responding to that trend, a trio of New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering researchers developed a wheeled mobile robot and accompanying lesson plans for middle school teachers. Their paper garnered the Ray H. Spiess Award from a division of the American Society for Engineering Education.
