Biomedical engineers develop the medical technology that saves lives. In our Biomedical Engineering academic program, you'll spend half of they day in the classroom, developing skills in scientific reasoning and asking research questions, and half of the day in the lab practicing 3D printing, 3D design, DNA extraction, and much more.
This multiple award-winning program covers the fundamental biological knowledge necessary to develop medical technologies and devices. Students go over biochemistry, materials chemistry, and scientific reasoning. Students work with DNA via extraction and transformation into bacteria, as well as practice 3D design and 3D printing. Teens discuss current breakthroughs in, and also ethics and societal implications of, biophysics, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering. Jeremiah Johnston, who earned his Masters of Science in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University, returns to lead this program every year. Last year, Jeremiah and students from the program visited A Step Ahead Prosthetics, and Boston University’s Biomedical Engineering Department!
This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens. Residential students at the Longwood Medical Area must be rising tenth graders or above. Students at the Dana Hall location may be rising eighth graders or above.
