Biomedical engineers play a very important role in medicine. They design technologies that help solve problems with the human body, which can include x-rays, artificial limbs, casts, braces, and even surgical instruments. They work closely with doctors and nurses to improve upon technologies that already help solve problems related to medicine and the human body.
Since biomedical engineering develop and recommend technologies to the medical field, it is important they also learn best techniques at collecting, representing, and analyzing data that provide evidence to support the development of various technologies. Fourth graders are spending time doing just that!
