VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a biomedical engineer is like.
Can you create a robotic hand with a balloon and coffee grounds? Biomedical engineers from the University of Chicago did!
STEP 1: Using a balloon, rubber band, and coffee grounds attempt to make a ‘robotic’/prosthetic hand.
STEP 2: See how close your design was to real biomedical engineers by reading this article.
STEP 3: After reading the article, make improvements to your robotic hand and try again!
Optional: Share your bioengineering creation in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
