    Go Fish: Engineering Prosthetic Tails - Biomedical Engineering

    Sometimes animals need our help! Just like humans, other animals can regain the function of a missing limb with the aid of a prosthetic device. Students will become biomechanical engineers as they use the Engineering Design Process to design prosthetic devices for a variety of animals.

    Working as engineers to solve biological and medical issues, students will engineer prosthetic devices to assist animals. From engineering a life vest for a model dog, to developing a model prosthetic elephant leg, eagle beak, and fish tail. They will select characteristics for their own fish species and develop exhibit signs, which they will present.
