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.

Drag Force Other Presenters: Jaime Lord, Dana Stevens, Frederick Hole, Casey-Ellen Collette

This presentation introduces a topic which effects almost every engineering discipline, Drag Force. In this presentation the importance of Drag Force is introduced, the consequences of Drag Force are explained, and students are introduced to the work many different types of engineers. After the presentations, students go through a hands on activity which involves using a wind tunnel to analyze the drag force on a car.
