Many of today's most pressing problems require engineers who have a solid foundation in life sciences and the engineering process. In this workshop participants will address a design challenge of an environmental issue. As a team, learners will simulate the design of a custom bacteria while exploring genetic engineering and the relationship between organisms, their environments and bio-remediation. Learners will also explore their own genetic characteristics while making their own original depiction of those characteristics in the form of a beaded bracelet. Teams will design a solution to an environmental issue while learning about human body systems and biomedical research at CU.

Supports CDE Academic Standards for Physical Science.
