Bits & Bytes 2016

Jacque, Andy, Carolyn, Hui, and Amir once again teamed with the The Engineering Place, this time to teach middle school school students about bone repair at their Bits and Bytes Engineering Day for middle schoolers. We may have had even more fun than the students! 

Bits and Bytes 2015

Jacque teamed up with Dr. Simon Roe from the NC State Vet School to give a presentation to local high school students as part of the NC State Engineering Bits and Bytes Day. They talked about bone material properties and how we can potentially improve treatment options for injury. The students experimented with breaking chalk and Popsicle sticks, and also worked with external fixators to determine effective configurations for bone healing.
