We are delighted to announce that we received a prestigious Ingenious Public Engagement Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering to promote biomedical engineering in schools. The project - Circuits! - will allow engineers and teachers to co produce a new teaching tool focusing on circuits used for biomedical applications. Circuits! is led by Proteus’ Dr Helen Szoor-McElhinney and myself and aims to inspire the next generation of biomedical engineers.
The project started in May 2017 and we plan to have the new teaching tool in schools by June 2018. Follow the latest exciting news about this project here.
Room packed with students during the first outreach event at the world-leading conference microTAS in Dublin. I presented to delegates our work on blood clotting using surface acoustic waves and to students how sound can be used to detect malaria. Our Lego DLD for particle separation was also here presented by Timm Krueger and Ewa Guzniczak (cf. outreach for further details).
