On October 11, 2013, the Biomedical Engineering Society held its annual barbecue. Professor, faculty, grad students, and undergrads attended to bond over good food and an intense undergraduates vs. faculty soccer game.
A spring barbecue should follow, so stay posted!!

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!

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!

The BMES GIM was a success! Lots of delicious liquid nitrogen ice cream was consumed. Make sure to stay posted on events if you missed this one!
Congratulations to Yuji Takeda and the Xu Lab for winning the Best Costume and Spookiest Lab trophies!

Residents, neighbors, and friends are invited to celebrate the tenth annual Community Day at Tufts. The event will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the academic quad. BMES will have a booth and need volunteers.
From experience, Tufts Community Day mostly attracts local children, so our activity will be targeted towards them. This year we will be crafting silk cocoon figures, shown below..
We don’t expect anyone to stay the entire day but it would be great if people could volunteer for an hour or so. You can sign up with your name and phone number at this link:

In honor of becoming an officially recognized chapter of the National Biomedical Engineering Society last year, we have decided to step up our game and create a web presence.
This site should serve primarily as a place to learn about what’s going on in the club, but we hope to make it more than that. It should also be a forum for people to talk about BME related things, everything from choosing classes and swapping textbooks to getting advice on what media is best for culturing HeLa cells. The more the site is used, the more helpful it will be.
Let us know what you want to see on here!
