Biomedical and Biochemical Engineering for K-12 students
REACH (Reaching Engineering and Architectural Career Heights) is a weeklong summer academy outreach program for high school students interested in engineering, architecture, or technology. Through module-based instruction, students are introduced to various engineering fields. This report describes one of the modules focused on introducing biomedical/biochemical engineering principles and practice. The approach taken in presenting biochemical/biomedical engineering is described along with the effectiveness of the approach. Pre- and post-assessment surveys found that the students were interested in the materials presented, actively involved in the experimental procedure, and the module successfully increased the students interest in the field of biochemical/biomedical engineering.
