  • An all-inclusive adventure - Iowa State University
    just one word Polio My interest goes back to my childhood when my brothers and I were stricken with the polio virus during the epidemic of the early 1950s Osterberg said I was fortunate not to have paralysis but many others were seriously affected He wouldn t realize it as a child of course but accessibility and inclusive design would become an important part of his life s work at Iowa State In fact it s this work that s made Iowa State s campus one of the most accessible in the nation I take the approach that we should make every effort with both new construction and remodeling to go beyond the minimum standards to make our designs inclusive Osterberg said So it should be no surprise that throughout the country architects interior designers building contractors code officials and more turn to Osterberg s book Access for Everyone A Guide to the Accessibility of Buildings and Sites with References to 2010 ADASAD for reference He also emphasizes the importance of design that meets the needs of all people regardless of physical cognitive or cultural differences in his Design for All People class at Iowa State Osterberg is regarded as an expert in inclusive design and recently was presented the Ames Humanitarian Award that recognizes residents who help promote inclusiveness and equality in the Ames community Although inclusive design often goes unnoticed by many people Osterberg says inclusively designed areas are easier for everyone to navigate With inclusive design Osterberg said it is easier to park easier to find your way easier to enter buildings easier to open doors easier to move through doorways and easier to use restrooms classrooms lecture rooms laboratories libraries and athletic facilities In short everyone at Iowa State benefits At Iowa State you could say

  • Engineering a Nicaraguan adventure - Iowa State University
    engineering students their travels to Nicaragua for a design course went beyond what they ever could have imagined That s because while they were there they had the opportunity to impact the lives of Nicaraguans for the better The students went to Nicaragua to build a biochar reactor and install ram pumps to help local farmers increase their crop yields While the students were there they discovered that sometimes the best way to learn is by getting outside of the classroom Not many people can say they designed and implemented a project in Nicaragua said Liz Sweeney senior in mechanical engineering Josh Marlin senior in civil engineering echoes that sentiment This trip offered a unique challenge to truly design with empathy Marlin said Not many programs have you sit down with groups of locals and have long conversations about the challenges they face the concerns they have and the things they value Even better yet while the students were on their journey they were immersed in Nicaraguan culture Said Ryan Williams sophomore in mechanical engineering We got to take many trips to different parts of the country We went volcano surfing and stayed with host families We got to actually roast coffee and make fresh tortillas We learned a lot about the culture They also made lifelong friends along the way I had no idea I would end up creating such amazing relationships with people whom I did not share a common language with Marlin said At Iowa State we have a saying that goes Choose your adventure Whether you choose to take a course in Nicaragua for a month or study abroad in Rome for an entire year it s like Liz Sweeney says This is a once in a lifetime experience You will not come back the same

  • She has an eye for adventure - Iowa State University
    outreach Information technology TIER efficiency review Employment Diversity Consumer information Athletics Cyclone athletics Sports schedules Tickets She has an eye for adventure Notice the determined look in Iowa State veterinary researcher Heather Greenlee s eye It s because Greenlee is bound and determined to learn all there is to know about cow retinas Specifically how these retinas can help with early identification of bovine spongiform encephalopathy BSE This research which is in collaboration with the USDA s National Animal Disease Center is helping to identify BSE up to 11 months before infected animals show any signs of illness When it comes to food safety this could have big implications That s because BSE is an untreatable neurodegenerative disorder that can incubate for years before any symptoms are detectable Greenlee said the screening methods used in this research could be used for animals tagged for import or export as a way to identify BSE sooner than other conventional methods But treatment for animals isn t all this research adventure holds It also could help lead to faster diagnoses of Alzheimer s and Parkinson s diseases in humans Our goal is to develop our understanding of the retina to monitor disease progression and to move diagnoses up earlier Greenlee said We think this research has the potential to improve diagnosis for a range of species and a range of diseases In other words it s research that could one day change the world At Iowa State researchers are making exciting headway in all kinds of fields from infectious diseases to climate change and more And what s even more exciting is that Iowa State students have the opportunity to learn from and even join these research endeavors All they have to do is keep their eyes open for adventure Learn about other
