Digispired ii Field Trip to ODU

On Friday, July 16th 2010, the students of the Digispired ii program traveled to Old Dominion University (ODU) to get a hands on feel of different STEM undergrad programs. The students were able to get a first-hand look at Thermodynamics, Micromechanics, Aerodynamics, Medical Imaging, Diagnosis and Analysis (MIDA), and Biomedical Engineering. With each lab the student was able to understand the principles and concepts behind that particular field and see the benefits of technology and how it has helped with advancements in that area; ODU graduate students led Digispired ii students on tours of the Engineering Department. ODU graduate students also shared with Digispired ii students their perspectives on engineering fields.
