Grade 8 - Biomedical Technology

Technological advancements are helping us live healthier and more productive lives every year. Join us as we explore such processes as brain function, body movement, limb replacement and computer-controlled life-support systems – as well as the assistive potential of robots!

  • Meet the Experts: meet doctors and health professionals who do everything from patient care to biomedical research and design.
  • Discover the Places Where Science Comes Alive: travel to the Cleveland Clinic, the Global Center for Health Innovation and more.
  • Make It Happen: study subjects ranging from the defense mechanism of cells to mind-controlled prosthetic arms! Scholars will also conduct health studies and experiments, and use Great Lakes Science Center’s “Spark Space” to design and build working biomedical devices. 

Please note: registration for GSA Grade 8 has reached maximum capacity for the 2016-2017 school year.
