(Students Understanding Principles of Research Education through Medicine, Engineering and Science)
SUPREMES is an academic-year program that provides selected high school students with exposure and experience to biomedical research and technology development in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Here, students will be introduced to new technologies, cutting-edge research and exciting laboratory practices, guided and taught by highly skilled, established faculty investigators. This experience provides students with the application component of biomedical science research to complement and support the theoretical information learned in the program. Furthermore, the student’s home academic institution may award academic credit or recognition after successful completion of the program in accordance with the institution’s policy and curriculum requirements.
The Chicago STEM Outreach Project
Through the Chicago STEM Outreach project, the NeuroMotor Control Laboratory partnered with a private grade school in Chicago’s Roger’s Park neighborhood to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and Discovery Learning techniques and resources to children in grades pre-K through 8.
DIY electrocardiogram is an after-school outreach event where students are given an arduino and all necessary equipment to build a functioning electrocardiogram (ECG). Each event includes a short lecture on heart physiology, a laboratory phase where students build the ECG, and activities designed to highlight the ECG in action.
If you think that your company might be interested in sponsoring an outreach project or that your school might be interested in having our team visit and talk to your students, please contact Dr. Frank Pintar.
