DR WAUGH’S RED CELL CONFERENCE (October 11th, 2019)
On October 11th, 2019, various members of BMES had the opportunity to volunteer at the Red Cell Conference, a meeting that fosters the exchange of novel research information about various aspects of erythrocyte biology. The meeting happened in Saunders Research Building and included a poster session as well as a few sets of presentations by researchers coming from different institutions across the United States. We had the pleasure to contribute towards this very informative event and learn more about new discoveries and innovations in the field.

SPOOKY SCIENCE DAY (26th October, 2019)
Spooky Science Day, hosted by the Society of Physics Students on October 26, was a fun time for all ages. Many young families in a variety of creative costumes showed up to our BMES table, where they enjoyed learning how blood flows through the heart with our interactive model. The themed candy was also a hit among the kids, and many struggled to decide between gummy brains, feet, or eyeballs. Other tables staffed by undergraduate organizations included demonstrations of electrical phenomena, building with marshmallows, and creating slime.
