Game Day: During the Drexel men’s basketball team’s stellar 2011-12 season, Drexel Magazine wanted a photographer to spend one entire day—from 7:30 a.m., when the Dragons first arrived for their morning shootaround, until nearly midnight, when the DAC lights were turned off for good—documenting what gameday is like for the players, the coaches, the support staff, the students and the fans of Drexel basketball. Check out the full article and photo set of the Dragons, Bruiser and the DACPack.

Drexel researchers are beginning to use 3-D printing to create smaller-scale replicas of the shape of dinosaur fossils. They will eventually build robotic models of giant dinosaurs, attaching artificial muscles  and tendons to perform comprehensive tests of how their bodies  could have handled physical stresses of the environment.
