7.25.23 – Physiology and Biomedical Engineering

Today our students delved more into understanding the physiological aspects of the digestive system by learning about the magic of enzymes and how these special proteins are able to help us chemically digest all the different foods (and sometimes non-food items) we eat. Students were also officially introduced to the Digestion Invention project they will be working on throughout the week, which (if done successfully) will have the ability to mimic the mechanical & chemical digestion capabilities of a real, in vivo digestive system.
