PLTW Students Attend Biomedical Engineering Society Annual Meeting
Ten students in the PLTW Biomedical Sciences program at Hamilton Career Center in Seneca, S.C. attended the National Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) 2012 Annual Meeting at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.
The students were able to participate in the integration of academics to industry as biomedical products go from being discovered to their implementation. They were among 50 students from around the U.S. who were named as BMES High School Scholars, and attended graduate students seminars and academic presentations from many biomedical post-secondary programs. The students also learned new and innovative research techniques that they could be used in their individual research projects for the Biomedical Innovations capstone course.
Students said that the highlights of the trip were "holding a human brain," "participating in the hands-on presentations," and "being among other people from around the world that are interested and passionate about the same things we are." The students were given this opportunity through a partnership with the Clemson University Bioengineering Department.
