Abstract

Students have access to the Internet at their fngertps via e-tablets and smart phones. However, the STEM felds are struggling to remain relevant in students' lives outside the classroom. In an efort to improve high school science curricula and to keep students engaged in the classroom, we developed a technology-rich bioengineering summer program for high school students in grades 9-12. The program utlized touch screen technology in conjuncton with hands-on experiments and traditonal lecturing to create an entertaining, relevant, and efectve classroom experience.
