Translating University Biosensor Research to a High School Laboratory Experience
Heldt, Caryn L.; Bank, Alex; Turpeinen, Dylan; King, Julia A.
Chemical Engineering Education, v50 n1 p70-75 Win 2016
The need to increase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduates is great. To interest more students into STEM degrees, we made our graphene biosensor research portable, inexpensive, and safe to demonstrate technology development to high school students. The students increased their knowledge of biosensors and proteins, and also enjoyed the lab. By exposing the students to socially relevant and technologically advanced science, we can increase the number of students that attain STEM degrees.
