This year’s Mass STEM week will showcase two engaging programs – Everyday Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. The dual programs will allow students to see how engineering can solve problems and make a difference, whether using ordinary objects or advancing healthcare. Students will come away with a broader view of engineering possibilities and how creativity and science can change lives. The variety of activities will ignite their ingenuity while teaching real-world applications.
This year for Mass STEM Week, students from all over the Commonwealth of Massachusetts will participate in a special project, “Biomedical Engineering: Transforming the Ordinary into Medical Marvels”, which will deepen their understanding of Biomedical Engineering, where engineers and medical professionals collaborate to solve health problems by designing medical devices and procedures. Biomedical engineering careers involve improving human health through innovations like artificial organs, prosthetics, medical imaging, and health informatics. All this while having fun creating some engineering designs using everyday items.
Massachusetts STEM Week (Oct 17-21, 2023), is an annual statewide event that offers Kids in Tech participants even more opportunities to learn about STEM fields.
During the previous Mass STEM Week in 2022, students were actively involved in the Everyday Engineering initiative, which aimed to broaden their awareness of careers in the field of engineering. Throughout the program, participants immersed themselves in hands-on activities, exploring the various facets of engineering disciplines.
The program’s highlight was a culminating project where students harnessed the principles of everyday engineering to design innovative solutions for common challenges.
Biomedical engineers seek solutions to health problems by applying scientific knowledge and innovation to design, build, and maintain technologies that improve medical care and human health.
There are over 50+ types of exciting engineering careers, according to Prep Scholar‘s website.
Each section below explains just a few of the many opportunities in the field of a Biomedical engineer’s career path.
We are here to answer any questions you might have about implementing this STEM Challenge!
