Snacks 22--Biomedical Engineering Forum!

Wow. After teaching for ten years at my wonderful school, University School of Nashville, I finally got to see talented HS teacher (and biomedical engineer, and Vanderbilt professor) Dr. Stacey Klein at work. It frequently amazes me how I can be in such close daily proximity with such talent and yet not avail myself of the opportunity to learn from it. Thanks to the Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach and the Adventure Science Center I was able to witness my colleague at work as she shared her love of science with a small audience of teachers and students at Nashville's wonderful Adventure Science Center. All in the service of carrying out the missions of both agencies, the open forum on Biomedical Engineering was held on Thursday evening, January 12, 2006. The audience was comprised of CSO and ASC members, teachers, and students all interested in exploring the many connections between medicine and engineering. They were treated to demonstrations of devices from heart monitors to lasers, along with detailed descriptions of just how medical imaging devices make diagnosing and treating health problems easier and quicker! This S4theB! features brief audio from that night, and I'll post some video and pics at a location I'll link to here when they're up. Episode 22 of Snacks4theBrain is right here. Also help yourself to all the previous shows available at the "Feed" link! Cheers! Links: Josh Beckham Stacey Klein Jerry Wilmink The Adventure Science Center The Alaska Podshow Podcast! Thanks, Scott (and "Alaska Bob!") The Podsafe Music Network Thanks, Jim Fidler! Note: The CSO encourages students to use every possible means to learn about careers in science and math. We do not at this time offer one-on-one interviews with working researchers, excepting as they appear in Snacks4theBrain! episodes.
Hey! I have an engineering report to complete and I'd like to know if you'd be willing to submit to a quick interview. Just a few questions about your job and experience. Thanks!
Sure, Nick. Email me at :)
Hey! I have to do a report on engineering too. I would like to ask some questions about biomedical engineering. Would you be willing to submit for an interview?..Thank you!
Ditto here, Rajiv, email me directly at
hey im am doing a report too but specifically on biomedical engineering and what is needed in high school and college to achieve this career. Is it ok if i email you too scott? thanks!
Hi..I have a BS in polymer engineering and MS in plastics engineering .Last semester I took up a directed studies course with a professor, that involved a short project for a biopsy needle development.That got me interested in this area and I wish to pursue a doctoral course in biomedical engineering sometime in the near future. All my association with biology has been through some online reading, but no formal coursework as such.Would it be possible/ feasible to make such a switch and to what extent will my background help?
Any inputs,leads, useful information, research info, research opportunities would be appreciated.
I really Appreciate you for your ten years of teaching.
