To pass, you must: (i) attend at least 3/4 of the class sessions, (ii) participate in literature review, and (iii) complete the summary articles, which leads to the final perspective essay. By the end of Class #1, students must decide whether to register or drop the course.


Decoders 1.6 builds on the combination of knowledge and skills learned in D1.0 and D1.4, respectively to guide students to develop their own mechanically adaptive (i.e., stretchable & flexible) piezoelectric systems. Students will learn how to write an article about their research findings that will be published on the course website by the end of semester. Students will learn how to do literature review, compose clear and concise sentences to describe their findings and write a perspective article in a collective manner.


  1. To work in a team setting and accomplish the task of building a mechanically adaptive device,
  2. To learn how to do effective literature review,
  3. To write a scientific article on the research findings as a team,
  4. To learn steps to publish the article in a peer-reviewed journal.
