Outreach Programs


Through the outreach program, the students from colleges, community colleges, and high schools involved in the activities of learning and practicing electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering knowledge in a novel way. We introduced to the students about the current state of the art in prosthetic legs and how far the technology has advanced. We also explained the basic principles of neurally controlled prostheses and presented some videos of our current research in prostheses. In addition, we demonstrated to the students to see how the muscle activities are represented as the electrical signals.

The outreach activities conducted in the past years:

  • June 2017, we offered a demo at Adult Nights: Superhero Science at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences;

  • June 2016, middle school students enrolled in Imhotep Academy visited our lab and learned about powered prostheses;

  • June/July 2014, middle school campers from the Engineering Place at NCSU enjoyed a full day camp in our lab;

  • March 2014, we gave a presentation at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences;

  • May 2012, we gave a presentation at the Foxborough Charter School;

  • April 2012, East Greenwich High School students visited our lab;

  • April 2011, Foxborough Charter School students visited our lab.
