Amy Rockwood and Chris Datsikas Win Student Design Competition Award

Amy Rockwood and Chris Datsikas took third place in a bio-medical engineering design competition for a project they developed in the CEID. Their pitch, a training platform that teaches healthcare providers how to use an external pacemaker in a way that mimics real time feedback, without having to practice on a patient.  CardiSim is a platform that bridges the gap between live teaching and teaching only through lectures and video simulations.

Khushi Baby_home.jpg

Congratulations Kushi Baby! After receiving a $200,000 grant from the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), Kushi Baby continues to help the children of rural India.

Kushi Baby started as class project in the CEID's “Appropriate Technology in the Developing World" course, co-taught by Dr. Joseph Zinter, assistant director of the CEID, and SEAS Lecturer Bo Hopkins.

The project helps document and record a child's vaccination records in areas like rural India. This allows health workers to know exactly what treatment and attention a child has had or needs at a given point in time.

Amid the High-Tech of CEID, Coppersmith Demonstrates Centuries-Old Craft

Not far from the laser cutters and 3D printers of the Center for Engineering Innovation and Design, a seventh-generation master coppersmith gave a presentation of his craft Thursday.

Bhalchandra Kadu, part of the Tambat caste that goes back generations, demonstrated the techniques of coppersmithing as they’re practiced in his home city of Pune, India. Kadu was accompanied by Professor Prasad Boradkar of Arizona State University. Together, they have been conducting research on the tradition of making copper utensils and other items from the Pune region.

CEID Summer Fellows Create Website to Narrow Healthcare Gap

SpokenMed, an informational healthcare website developed as part of the Center for Engineering Innovation and Design Summer Fellowship, is up and running and seeking contributors.

The website, developed by students Tiwa Lawal, Joyce Guo and Dhiksha Balaji, serves as a forum and online resource where members of different cultural groups can connect with other people in their community to discuss a broad range of concerns, questions, and experiences. SpokenMed empowers patients of populations that are often left behind in the healthcare system to take the initiative in their health. The information discussed and provided on SpokenMed is information particular to different minorities and cultural groups, but rarely found on other hospital websites. The goal is to reduce healthcare disparities by connecting people and providing more information.

Next stop: Bringing a literary train to life with a 3D printer

Incorporating French Literature in a Makerspace: When readers describe the experience of a great novel, they might say the story “leaps off the page.” But for assistant professor of French Morgane Cadieu, that phrase took on new meaning last fall when she and three of her students set out to create a 3D-printed train based entirely on descriptions from Emile Zola’s 1890 novel “La Bête humaine” (“The Beast Within”).
