The job of the biomechanical engineer is to figure out how physical forces influence living organisms. The narrator describes the education needed, while a fascinating video shows how engineers develop tattoos that can control remote...
What does modeling have to do with bones? A video introduces us to Dr. Prinold, a biomechanical engineer. Dr. Prinold is working at modeling the forces incurred on a child's ankle. The idea is that the model will help doctors understand...
Rochester Institute of Technology
Discuss mechanical advantage and how the human body moves/works. Learners focus on bioengineering, working together to build a functioning mechanical arm. Additionally, they analyze an air muscle, discussing its appropriate use in humans.
Rochester Institute of Technology
In 1993, five biomedical engineers in Edinburgh, Scotland, created the first functional bionic arm. In the activity, learners explore the world of bioengineering through discussion and hands-on exploration. In groups, participants...
Students study biomechanics. They apply their understanding of sports to determine what athletes do to improve their performance. They participate in a series of lessons and activities.
Build a concrete understanding of mechanical engineering. Viewers watch an engaging video that describes mechanical engineering as the "design, construction, operation, and maintenance of mechanical systems." It also highlights some...
Students observe two chelae. They write three differences they observe in their notebooks. Students suggest a hypothesis which would explain these differences. They dissect the chela. Students analyze the lobster claw as a mechanical lever.
Learners investigate range of motion in human joints and the mechanical devices they emulate. They construct a human arm model with three joints which emulate the wrist, elbow and shoulder.
An object in motion will remain in motion, and your physics learners will really get moving by viewing this PowerPoint! They examine each of Newton's laws of motion, learning about force, inertia, acceleration, and equilibrium. They are...
Students explore athletes and how they perform. In this physics lesson, students investigate how physics is involved in sports. Students go online to interactive sites that explain physics and biomechanics. Students also research and...
Students are introduced to the biomechanical characteristics of helmets. They incorporate these characteristics into designs for helmets for various applications. They understand that using a bicycle helmet helps to protect the brain and...
Learners decide on an activity like running, swimming or skating for a performance analysis. They have friends or family members videotape them as they exercise, then review the video to see how they can improve their performance.
Get to know the human body from the inside out. The first lesson plan in a series of 10 introduces the class to the abdominopelvic cavity. Biomedical engineers need to understand the region of the body as they develop and improve...
How do you model the movement of an astronaut? The activity features software that uses an avatar to mimic movement. Groups work to determine the translation between the pre-image and the image. They then experiment with reflections in...
Students examine the discipline of biomedical engineering or bioengineering. They complete worksheets by participating in reading background information and completing a hands on activity. They design a prototype of a cast to set a...
Students examine the advantages and disadvantages of renewable and non renewable energy sources. For this engineering lesson students explain what it means for a house to be "off the grid".
Learners build models of types of levers. In this simple machines lesson, students use dowels and modified wooden rulers to build different types of levers. They compete to create the most efficient lever in the class.
