Bioengineering participates in Girls’ Career Day 2018

The Center for Women’s Health Research (CWHR) creates a day for high-school girls to come on campus and learn about career opportunities in healthcare and science.  We were told that Bioengineering was a highlight of the day for the girls.  Special thanks to Kendall Hunter, Bradford Smith, Emily Gibson, Michelle Mellenthin, Courtney Mattson,  Baris Ozbay, and Connor McCullough for their participation.  Here are some quotes the CWHR shared from student evaluations:

“The most interesting thing that I learned today was seeing how we can draw conclusions about human brains from mouse brains.”

“I loved learning about the use of lasers to map out the brain and why cardiac vessels need to be elastic.”

“It was really interesting to see learn how researchers can speed up and slow down a mouse’s breathing in order to understand more about breathing problems in humans.”

“One of the most fascinating things that I learned was how admired the engineers are here.”
