Join us! We’re sending citizen science to the International Space Station!
” several new opportunities to get involved in research including one we are sending to the International Space Station in September! Join us and the Science Cheerleaders (NFL and NBA cheerleaders who are also scientists and engineers) to collect microbes from sports stadiums which we will send to UCDavis for analysis. Forty samples will be sent to the ISS and compared to the microbes astronauts find up there!
Announcing the finalists and winners of the SciStarter Citizen Science Contest presented by Instructables and Discover Magazine! Check out the nifty solutions this DIY community came up with to help solve some real challenges presented by citizen science project organizers”
eGFI – For Teachers » Lesson: Build a Prosthetic Device
“intro to biomedical engineering and the technology of prosthetics. As they create a model prosthetic lower leg, testing strength and considering its pros and cons, they learn about issues and materials that biomedical engineers consider in designing artificial limbs.”
Prosthetic Party – Activity – www.TeachEngineering.org
“Student teams investigate biomedical engineering and the technology of prosthetics. Students create a model prosthetic lower leg using various materials. Each team demonstrate its prosthesis’ strength and consider its pros and cons, giving insight into the characteristics and materials biomedical engineers consider in designing artificial limbs. “
Research | Welcome to Tech Trek!
“In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law and business, why are there so few women scientists and engineers? With Why So Few?, AAUW presents compelling evidence that can help to explain this puzzle. The research report presents in-depth yet accessible profiles of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers – including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities – that continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math.”
