TeachEngineering: Next-Generation Surgical Tools in the Body

Collector: Ann V.

Designed for high schoolers, the 11 lessons and activities in the “TeachEngineering: Next-Generation Surgical Tools in the Body” unit module prepare STEM teams to design prototypes of laparoscopic surgical robots. After an introduction to the features of the abdominopelvic cavity, young engineers use Silly Putty, balloons, springs, and marbles to learn about tissue mechanics, viscoelasticity, equilibrium, viscosity, and elasticity, all concepts they need to design their robotic tools.
