Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering
Students discussed recent advances in technology and classified them as belonging to science or engineering. Students were introduced to the human heart and its mechanics, after which they brainstormed in groups to build their own life-sized heart models, choosing from the materials provided and demonstrated their working models to each other. Students were encouraged to create "diseases" in their heart models and explain how they would correlate this to "real'life" experiences. Students were also introduced to my newest project, arduino heart rate monitors and asked to suggest creative projects that they could work on in the near future.
