Designing Animal Membranes
Presently our students are investigating the guiding question-
“How do bioengineers use natural objects to inspire human-made technologies?”
More specifically, our students are problem solving ways to design artificial animal membranes in order for animals to survive when they are apart from their natural habitats. The first investigations focused on what membranes are and how they work. An upcoming project is for students to design, test, and improve an artificial membrane based on previous experience.
