Today we met the amazing Michelle Mellenthin, a biomedical engineer and post-doctorate researcher. We learned about her experiences with Engineers without Borders and her current research on technology that helps damaged lungs function properly. We also talked about the use of sensors in biomedical engineering and started making our own pressure sensors!
We will finish making our sensors at the next meeting on Dec. 12, and continue our exploration of electronic circuits by making festive LED ornaments.
