Students in Bloomfield Learn About Biomedical Engineering
By Quinton Pittman
On November 11, 2011 Engineering Ambassadors went on a visit to the Academy of Aerospace Engineering in Bloomfield, CT. There they presented to students with ages ranging from the 6th to the 9th grades. They taught them about sensors and how biomedical engineers help to design sensors that track body movements to help improve the design of space suits. The students also had a hands-on activity in which they designed and built their own stethoscope, and were surprised when they were able to listen to one another’s heartbeat. The visit was an overall success and the students had a great time learning about engineering and what engineers really do.
