Nanoparticles in the Body
Even though nanoparticles are extremely small, getting them to travel through the bloodstream can be difficult. In the Nanoparticles in the Body activity students learn about the engineering design process while trying to fabricate a nanoparticle delivery system.
Increasing Rural Nebraska Students' Exposure to Engineering
Here in Nebraska, many of our students are in rural communities. Underrepresentation of rural students in engineering fields persists despite programs such as summer camps, internships, and distance learning opportunities. The Iverson Lab aims to increase knowledge and understanding of the engineering field for rural students through ‘place-based’ programs. We hope to increase representation of this underrepresented population in the field of engineering by exposing them to some of the many exciting opportunities for engineers in today’s world.
Biomedical Engineering teacher workshops
Nicole Iverson, Jennifer Keshwani, Angela Pannier and Krista Adams teach instructors about biomedical engineering in the Nebraska BLAST workshop. More information about upcoming workshops can be found here.
