Lesson 3: Engineer

In The Engineer, students will:

Choose a problem with the nervous system: carpal tunnel or spinal cord injury and design a solution to either solve the malfunction or help manage the symptoms associated with the malfunction. They will build a model of their design solution that shows shows how the product can assist or support the chosen Nervous System condition and present the final design to peers within the “Medical Community” for review.
