Biomedical Engineering @ IMSA
Innovate through engineering and physiology! This course will begin with an introduction to the foundations of engineering, including classification and applications.
Students will focus on biomedical engineering, learning about heart physiology and differentiating between the mechanical and electrical parts of the heart as well as cardiac circulation.
They will then use biophysical principles such as Poiseuille’s equation to design their model. The next step will be building a working heart model which can pump “blood” using tubes and assorted pumping methods of their choice.
The week will culminate with the participants presenting their creations at a showcase for parents.
