Date Wednesday 23 November 2016
Subject area Biomedical Engineering
Year group Year 10/11
This workshop will give you a taste of what it is like to be a biomedical engineer, and design and make your own medical implant. A patient has broken the femur bone in one of their legs and been brought to A&E for help. Their X-rays show it is a nasty break and they are going to need surgery.
The surgeon needs you, the engineer, to design and build a device which will hold the bone
together while it heals. You will discover the science behind these amazing implants and how biomedical engineers help patients.
