Regenerative Medicine: GROWING FUTURES IN STEM EDUCATION AND THE K-12 CLASSROOM
Aug. 2 daily until Aug. 3
Pittsburgh, PAVisit the event website
PTEI is partnering with the Math Science Collaborative (MSC) to engage teachers and students to the wonders of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM) – and spark interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers in their own backyard.
Description: A starfish can grow a new arm, but YOU can’t. A salamander can regenerate a severed leg, but humans have to rely on man-made prosthetic limbs. Can Pittsburgh’s researchers and clinicians fabricate new tissues and organs or induce damaged tissues to regenerate? Can K-12 STEM educators translate the promise of TERM to diverse student populations to reinforce learning and excite interest? Read more info at the link!
