Biomedical Engineering Day with Kennedy Health Careers Academy Ninth Graders

This is an annual event, organized in the fall by Prof. Murthy with support from a National Science Foundation CAREER award. The entire ninth grade class from the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers spends half a day at Northeastern for discussions on scientific careers in medicine and engineering followed by lab tours and demonstrations. The 2009 event included career discussions with Prof. Murthy, Prof. Rebecca Carrier of the Chemical Engineering Department at Northeastern, and Dr. Atish Choudhury, a physician-scientist at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Summer Outreach Activities

We work with high school students and teachers through the Research Experience for Teachers and Young Scholars programs at Northeastern. This activity has been a rewarding experience for both the laboratory as well as the participants.

Participants from 2009:  Luciana Salles (left), a student at Belmont High school and Gregory Banks (right), a teacher at the Urban Science Academy in Boston.
