Welcome to Week 10!
This week we will be doing a deeper dive into Bioengineering! Please note that this will be the last weekly newsletter until September. We will be publishing a single “Summer Newsletter” (late June) to cover the summer. We will continue with bi-weekly newsletters in September.
In this newsletter you will be introduced to a STEM topic and find a related-activity to work on during the week (please share your results with us!), as well as extensions to additional learning or games related to the field. In addition, you will find a Northeastern connection – something Northeastern is doing related to that field.
- AIMBE – Why Biomedical Engineering?
Discover the world of Biomedical engineering /Bioengineering. Interviews with professional Bioengineers, exploration of career and companies in the industry, and more.
- BioMedical Engineering @Northeastern.
Northeastern University’s College of Engineering offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Bioengineering. As an undergraduate Bioengineering student at Northeastern you focus on one of four research areas: Imaging, Instrumentation, and Signal Processing; Biomechanics, Biotransport, and MechanoBiology; Molecular, Cell, and Tissue Engineering; or Computation and Systems Biology. Examine degree programs and classes offered, look at Faculty research projects, explore the community.
Web Resources for K-12 Students and Parents
In addition to the resource highlight above, which is tied directly to the Newsletter topic, we will also highlight two new web resources each week.
EurekAlert is a nonprofit news-release distribution platform operated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) as a resource for journalists and the public, hosting news releases produced by universities, journal publishers, medical centers, government agencies, corporations, and other organizations engaged in all disciplines of scientific research
- Science Experiments for Kids
Science experiments for elementary school kids, such as making lava lamps or bending water. Also has games, quizzes, project ideas, lesson plans, and more.
