Middle School

Exploring Biomedical Engineering in STEM

Phil Mayhoffer, Middle School STEM Teacher
We are finalizing our unit on Biomedical Engineering with a review of why 3D printing is such an important development in the world of medicine. They are using recent events in medical technologies and our classroom experience with 3D printing to communicate where the impact of 3D printing on the accessibility of prosthetics, surgical operations, and other areas related to health. As they communicate the current state of medicine, they are also catching a glimpse of where medical technologies will be taking us in the future.

Thank you to Bob Radocy, owner of TRS Prosthetics, for coming and speaking to our students.
