The Summer Biomedical Electronics Experience is a high school summer program designed to provide a college level experience that includes working in a university lab environment and obtaining knowledge and skills in the biomedical engineering field. For most of the program, students will be designing in Solidworks to 3D print a prosthetic wrist housing and will be learning the basics of circuitry and microcontroller programming.
Necessary Volunteer Requirements:
- Must pass a background check
- Have some experience working with high school students
- Complete an interview with SBEE primary instructors
- Must commit to a minimum of 30 hours of volunteering for the SBEE program from July 23rd through August 3rd.
- Able to attend a series of training sessions prior to the program start date
- At a minimum, TA's must be bachelor's degree seeking (in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or computer science.) Junior year or above.
Volunteer skills desired:
- Proficiency in programming languages C++ (using Energia)
- Solidworks (CAD Experience)
