Presentations

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

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: Carly Nadler, Casey-Ellen Collette, Tyler Graf, Erin Goodwin

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, Ian Steenstra, Louis Caponi, Erin Goodwin, Allison Douglas

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.

Design of An Athlete Other Presenters: Tyler Graf, Timothy Spafford, Enxhi Marika, Carly Nadler, Francesca LaPinta, Allison Douglas, Alyssa Borges

The physics and engineering behind the sports that we love and hear about every day. We speak about why the bodies and skill sets that certain athletes have benefit them in their respective sports, but may not be optimal in other sports. We will also speak about the engineering that goes into designing protective equipment as well as creating and using biometric technology. Hands on activities include force plates to measure jump force, photo gates to measure speed, and EMGs to measure muscle activity as well as the opportunity for students to use the equipment to measure anything they think would work.
