DIY Science

Science...all grown up | Hands-on lab experiences for adults (18+)

On Thin Ice: Medical Engineering and Heat Transfer

Friday, April 10 | 7 – 9 p.m.

How do scientists, engineers and physicians work together to improve human health? At this do-it-yourself event, you’ll learn about principles of heat transfer and medical device design by modeling the rescue of a hypothermic dog. Small groups will work together to design a device to warm the dog, and then test their device for effectiveness.

About DIY Science

Hands-on laboratory experiences are not just for kids! Each month, a different activity encourages adult (18+) audiences to put on lab coats, goggles and gloves and get a firsthand sense of cutting-edge research.

Usually held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday evenings, these do-it-yourself labs feature different topics ranging from epigenetics to microfluidics to nanotechnology to rapid prototyping and beyond.

DIY Science is supported by Morgridge Institute for Research, UW–Madison and WARF.
