Biomedical Engineering - Organ Systems I

The Emerging World of Engineering in Heath Sciences!

Biomedical engineering, a new emerging field of engineering, deals with the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes. Closing the gap between engineering and life sciences, this is an exciting intersection of two classic industries: health and mechanical engineering.

Utilizing our innovative STEM For Kids WayTM of taking complex real life applications and making them a child’s play, participants in this program will explore two organ systems in human body:

  • Skeletal System – supports and protects the body while giving it shape and form
  • Muscular System – enables movement through the contraction of muscles.

Engineering Design Challenges get children on their feet exploring joints, fractures, bones and muscles.  Participants design their own hinge, ball and socket, and hydraulic prosthetics.

Engaging activities include the The bare bones on Joints!, Grippy Test, Get a Mask! and Prosthetics Engineering Design LabTM.
