Orthopaedics Engineering for Kids and Teens

Dr. Jenni Buckley and Dr. Amy Trauth-Nare from the University of Delaware talk about Orthopaedics in Action (OIA), their curriculum in biomechanics and engineering design for middle school and high school students. They used their respective expertise in mechanical engineering and K-12 education to create the hands-on OIA lessons, which originated from an initiative to attract more women into orthopaedics as engineers and doctors. Hear them discuss the curriculum, the benefits of lessons rooted in biology, educational partnerships, and lessons in toy design, among other topics.
