How can we measure the volume of an inflated balloon? From medical problem to engineering solution
This unit is designed for families with children from the age of 8 and / or pupils in the 4-6th grade
The workshop – How can we measure the volume of an inflated balloon? From medical problem to engineering solution – will broaden participants’ awareness on how engineers work. In this workshop we will specifically look at biomedical engineering through a relevant scenario, which provides participants with a challenge to develop and designing a biomedical instrument for measuring exhalation volume. The participants will “Ask” and gather information through scientific experiments and then, working in small groups, each group will “Imagine” possible solutions, “Plan”, “Create” and ” Improve” on solutions originally suggested.
The specific science aspects that are taught in this workshop are “the respiratory system” and “measuring volume”.
