SUMMER CAMP PRESENTATION

Dr. Chowdhury Represents IMSE for the Explore Engineering Summer Camp, 2021

Dr. Chowdhury represented IMSE department as an instructor for the Explore Engineering Summer Camp hosted by the Engineering Opportunities Center. The camp provided the opportunity for high school students to live life as Texas Tech Engineering students, including staying in the dorms for a week! As seen in the linked photos, students were able to have firsthand experience with Dr. Chowdhury's biomechanics and engineering research projects on firefighting helmets, shoulder and back exoskeleton, and virtual reality. He also taught students about the importance of human-centric designs of products, tools, systems, and work to improve the comfort, performance, and safety of human users. We hope to see these students back at the Whitacre College of Engineering soon!
