Company Tour: MC10

November 18th, 2013 · Comments Off

On 11/14/13, Tufts BMES was lucky enough to go on a company tour to see MC10. Located in the neighboring city of Cambridge, MA, MC10 develops a variety of electronics for medical applications. To learn more, check out their website at: http://www.mc10inc.com/

Some of the technology that MC10 develops includes implantable electronics and catheters with sensors.

Special thanks to Ms. Yamaguchi for organizing such a wonderful tour, and to Ms. Webster for the photos!

Reverse Trick-Or-Treat!

November 10th, 2013 · Comments Off

Tufts BMES took Sci-tech by surprise on Halloween this year by reverse-trick-or-treating–that’s when people go around giving out candy instead of going around asking others for it. We were able to spread joy and Halloween spirit through some candies and chocolates. It was our way of saying thank you for all of your support for BMES events. Needless to say, it was a very “sweet” experience :) Thanks always, Tufts!!

Community Day 2013

October 27th, 2013 · Comments Off

On 9/29/13, Tufts BMES participated in Community Day. BMES worked with kids to make Oobleck, a non-newtonian fluid that has the characteristics of a fluid and a solid. Kids got to make this slime-like substance, and take it home with them. We hope we were able to share our love of science with the kids and thousands of people who attended the event!

Resume Workshop 2013

October 27th, 2013 · Comments Off

On September 24, 2013, Professor Sam Liggero from the Gordon Institute of Engineering Management lead a resume workshop specifically tailored toward students with engineering and science backgrounds.

Students learned how to promote their strengths and sell themselves in both the written (resume) and verbal (career fair) format. They also discussed how to conduct pre-Fair company research, and talk about some companies that will be at the Fair.

We will be holding these periodically for students to prepare for career fairs and internship searches, so make sure to be on the look out!
