Outrageous October

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.

Hi Everyone!
Our next mentoring event will be on Tuesday, December 3rd from 8:30-9:40 am in Goergen Atrium! Starbucks coffee and Wegmans muffins will be served!  We will be focusing on the BME 101 poster session which will be this Friday. First years will be able to get valuable advice on the poster presentation from the upperclassmen who have been through it before.

Sophomore mentees, you can be mentors on this topic too! You can also come with questions about classes, summer research etc.

You do not need to stay for the whole event, and you can stop by on your way to class! This is a great way to get your end of semester questions answered or help out younger students who are having college finals and big projects for the first time. Hope to see you all there!
