100up Biomedical Engineering Workshop

After a successful inaugural workshop in 2016, the Division of Biomedical Engineering hosts again 100 grade-10 learners from 20 secondary schools in Khayelitsha who are enrolled in the 100up project of UCT's School Improvement Initiative. This year, there will be seven thematic stations including medical imaging, heart valves, tissue engineering, medical devices, health innovation, mHealth and mechanobiology. The workshop held on the last day of the National Science Week 2017 aims at inspiring the school learners for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The event is organised in collaboration with UCT's School Development Unit.
