bioengineering Bootcamp

Explore the basics of Bioengineering! Through hands-on activities, students will learn how bioengineers combine their knowledge of biology, chemistry and engineering to create solutions to help people live healthier lives. Activities include:

  • Exploring the biology of blood
  • Designing and constructing prosthetic limbs
  • Exploring and modeling human heart valves
  • Developing and testing new methods for mending broken bones

Students will learn about various careers and subfields of Bioengineering. The week will conclude with an Open House where family and friends are invited to campus to view student projects. T-shirts and certificates will be provided.

Please note: this program is designed for students with limited exposure to engineering design.
