International Women in Engineering Day
22 June 2018 was another busy day for MetaboLight – we were invited to help out in celebrating International Women in Engineering Day!
We met many enthusiastic girls who were passionate about engineering, and showed them what engineers do and their significance to the society. We conducted hand scans with light that can penetrate through their hands – and many of them saw their blood vessels in real time! We also scanned some of their brains and measured their brain oxygenation and metabolism, which many girls found fascinating!
We reached out to 114 year 12 girls that day – and hopefully will continue to inspire more people throughout the year!
