A new program placing interested high school students for Bioscience High School and other local high schools with visiting undergraduates from other universities
into Biomedical Engineering labs at ASU started this June. The students from BHS in Phoenix are earning high school internship credit as part of a program developed by Mrs. Renu Singh, the Internship & Research Coordinator at BHS. Over 25 students, some coming from Marquette, University of Arizona, Stanford, and local high school joined the academic labs of many biomedical engineering faculty this summer. Students will work alongside neural engineers and scientists, biomaterialists, synthetic biologists bioelectronics and biosensor design faculty and students. The program, started by Drs. Jeffrey T. La Belle, Research Professor and SBHSE Internship Coordinator and Jan Snyder, Fulton School of Engineering Educational Outreach Coordinator, is in its first stages, but has tremendous support of staff, faculty and students.
