Compton—More than 300 middle and high school students from the Compton and Long Beach Unified school districts will attend a Biomedical Engineering Open House at the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering, Friday, Oct. 28, from 9 am to 1:30 p.m.

Students are scheduled to participate in university biomedical engineering projects involving exoskeletons, prosthetics and tour the labs of prominent biomedical engineers Eun Ji Chung, Megan McCain, Ellis Meng, and Jean-Michel Maarek.

On hand for short lectures will be biomedical engineers Stacey Finley and Bartlett Mel.

USC graduate and undergraduate students in biomedical engineering will manage 11 interactive stations where visiting students will have the opportunity to speak with current USC students and alongside them to build biomedical devices and participate in other engineering projects. Biomedical engineering projects include catheter assembly, prosthetic hands, exoskeletons, and detecting concussions
