Event description

Description

The 2020 Edison Lecture Series will take place on Friday, January 31 at The University of Texas at Austin's Engineering Education and Research building.

The Edison Lecture Series engages middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering. Edison attendees learn the fundamentals of an engineering topic through a university-style lecture, then see these concepts come to life through hands-on demos. Be part of the excitement!

The 2020 lecture topic is Embedded Medicine. Recent advances in technology have changed how we deliver healthcare in hospitals, clinics, and homes. Learn how electrical & computer engineering plays a role in health care innovations like:

  • Prosthetics that are controlled by the human brain

  • Smart pills capable of targeted drug delivery

  • Robotics in surgical suites

  • Health care using Smart Phones and the Internet of Things

Come to the Edison Lecture Series to explore this new frontier in electrical & computer engineering!
