Presentations

Evolution of Prosthetics - Biomedical Engineering Other Presenters: Louis Caponi, Alice Connelli, Dana Stevens, Enxhi Marika, Carly Nadler, Tyler Graf, Nicole Zimmer, Samantha Wong

This presentation covers the evolution of prosthetics and the engineering design process that governs the innovation. Topics covered will include biomechanics, action potentials and the connection of the nervous system, as well as future bionic and thought-controlled prostheses.

Cellular and Tissue Engineering Other Presenters: Erin Goodwin, Tyler Graf, Casey-Ellen Collette, Sarah Mogan

This presentation will discuss the current solutions that are being developed to solve medical problems. It will focus on how engineers are working to eliminate the need for organ transplants by finding ways to create organs outside of the body. In the hands on activity, students will work in teams to create their own organs out of synthetic materials. As a class, the students will have to try to put all of their organs together to create a body. This presentation will expose students to the biomedical engineering field and advances, and it will also highlight the various types of engineering that are involved in this field. Key Words: biology, cells, tissue, organs and basic anatomy, 3D printing, etc.

Oil Spill Cleanup Other Presenters: Luke Cherniack, Carly Nadler, Nickolas Ziter, Samantha Bliss, Sarah Mogan

An overview of how oil spills affect ecosystems that directly affect our lives and how engineers are working with scientists to develop new technology to quickly and effectively recover these ecosystems from oil spill disasters.
