Dates: July 8th – August 2nd, 2013
The School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems offers a four-week lab rotation program, which allows high school students to gain an understanding of biomedical engineering as a discipline and profession. Participants will learn laboratory and research skills related to life saving solutions alongside graduate and post-graduate mentors. During the first week, students will shadow staff in biomedical engineering labs and learn basic lab skills and safety from our staff. They will also tour Drexel's campus and the University City Science Center, attend a class, and participate in a civic engagement activity related to health and life saving solutions. In weeks two through four, the participants will begin lab rotations through the following three biomedical engineering labs: Nanotechnology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Biomaterials and Skin.
This is a non-residential program. The program will run Monday through Friday, from approximately 9 am - 4 pm each day. A finalized agenda will be sent upon admission to the program.
