Palo Alto City Council passed a highly debated and controversial ordinance in early August banning the act of living in a vehicle within the city.
The Redwood City Council recently approved Stanford’s proposal to build a 35-acre satellite campus in the city, west of Highway 101 and next to the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center.
The property will cater to both academic and non-academic uses, though it will mainly be used by Stanford departments that don’t necessarily have to be located on campus, such as Land Building and Real Estate, Human Resources and other administrative functions.
Organized by Stanford undergraduate Stephanie Young ’14, the Bioengineering Bootcamp — held at Stanford this summer for the first time — introduced high school students to the bioengineering field through research presentations given by Stanford professors and graduate students as well as hands-on projects. Young’s idea for orchestrating a bioengineering-themed program stemmed from last summer, when she talked with a friend who was coordinating a high school debate camp.
The Daily compiled a brief preview of how local communities plan to celebrate Independence Day.
The program has proven to be a hit among Stanford students and alumni, with seven participating in the program’s first three sessions.
University administrators and local government officials continue to differ, meanwhile, on whether further revisions will take place before the project moves forward.
