Engineering@IMSA – Tuesday: What is the Heart’s Purpose?

Today our engineers learned about the heart as a machine.  Our hearts are able to pump blood throughout our entire bodies – that is quite a pump!

After learning about the types of pumps the heart uses the engineers used that knowledge to continue perfecting their heart models.
