Les Filles et les Sciences
On October 27th, two members of our club held a booth at the "Les Filles et les Sciences: un duo électrisant" event to inspire young high school women to pursue a career in STEM and engineering. Our members presented microneedles and a microfluidic chip, sharing their experiences in the field of bioengineering, in the hopes of inspiring future engineers. Over 40 students and parents attended our booth! It was also a great opportunity to meet many professionals in the field and connect to collaborate on future outreach activities in local high schools and CÉGEPs. Thank you to Technoscience, École Polytechnique, and ÉTS for organizing such a successful event!
In-person events are back with Caravan Visits! McGill BioDesign visited Vanier, John Abbott and Marianopolis this year. Students got the chance to learn more about the Department of Bioengineering at McGill as well as the different projects that the members of the design team are working on. Take a look below at the photos from the visits, and make sure to check back in the fall for more outreach events!
