Course Description

This multi-faceted camp addresses three areas of interest surrounding biosciences and engineering:

  • current research;
  • ethics and communication;
  • and college and career paths

During the two weeks, participants will advance their understanding of current research in biosciences and engineering while developing their analytical thinking and problem solving skills. Through hands on activities in various engineering lab settings, students will learn about the current tools and techniques used in research. Additionally, they will develop relevant, real-life problem definitions and go through the engineering design process to generate possible solutions to the problem they define. The problems defined will be derived from exposure to the current research conducted during the first week of the camp.

  • Hands on, applied problem solving activities and labs in Pratt School of Engineering and the Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility;
  • Collaborative Team Capstone Design Project;
  • Engineering Ethics and Communication Workshop;
  • Engineering and Biosciences Career Workshop with guest speaker mini-series;
  • Panel for successful experiences in applying to and surviving engineering in college;
  • Topics include: biomechanics, biomedical imaging, electrobiology, bimolecular and tissue engineering;
  • Co-curricular social and recreational activities.
