Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer awarded a new KEEN Topical Grant

By Mansoor NasirComments Off on Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer awarded a new KEEN Topical Grant

Dr. Mansoor Nasir (PI) and Dr. Eric Meyer (Co-PI) were recently awarded a $25,000 grant by Kern Family Foundation (KFF) to develop a model for dissemination of entrepreneurial mindset in biomedical engineering.

The two faculty were the recipients of Kern Entrepreneur Education Network (KEEN) Topical grant in 2014 through which they developed modules for several courses focusing on the entrepreneurial skill set. The modules used the Quantified-self and Wearables as a theme for implementation. Eric and Mansoor

The following year (2015) the two faculty received funds through the KEEN Topical Subnet grant to organize three half-day workshops. After the first workshop on LTU campus, Dr. Nasir and Dr. Meyer took the Quantified-self ‘Roadshow’ to Bucknell and Ohio Northern Universities, where faculty and students were introduced to Theory and Practice of entrepreneurship.

The focus of the new grant is to specifically focus on broadening the scope of dissemination beyond the network through creation of digital and media resources. The faculty will work to integrate the LTU BME materials into the digital platform currently being developed by the KFF.

Nanotechnology Summer Camp

By Comments Off on Nanotechnology Summer Camp

Tomorrow July 25 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about nanotechnology.

Students will explore the mysteries of matter at the level of atoms and molecules. At the nanoscale(there are 25,400,000 nanometers to an inch), copper can become transparent and aluminum combustible. They will learn about the unexpected behavior of materials at the nanoscale in interactive discussions, hands-on activities, and lab tours. Students will even discover how we can mimic nature to make better sticky tape and stain-proof pants. No science knowledge is required.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!

Tomorrow July 11 kicks off the start of a week of new and exciting things for high school students looking to learn more about biomedical engineering.

Students will explore the role of a biomedical engineer in designing procedures and equipment that assist in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and injury, make medical testing less intrusive, and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities. Team projects will acquaint students with basic engineering design tools and the instrumentation used in medical settings.

Good luck students, we look forward to having you and posting about your experiences!
