How does this activity connect to STEM and today's Girl Day theme of Improving Lives: Mind, Body, Medicine?
One role that biomedical engineers have is to create medical devices to solve various illnesses that patients may have. These devices improve the lives of patients by reducing the pain that patients may suffer from and the devices can also treat diseases.
