To date, Caltech has earned themselves 82 awards from the year-old American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, totaling more than $33 million and supporting 93 jobs, the school announced today. The money has gone towards studies on how to reduce jet noise, an upgrade to the Southern California Seismic Network, a catalog of jellyfish DNA and the California High School Cosmic Ray Observatory (CHICOS) program, which provides high school students access to cosmic ray research, among other programs. "We're grateful to have this opportunity to advance research designed to benefit the entire country," said says Caltech president Jean-Lou Chameau in a statement.
