MetaboLight cooperates with EWB – yet again!
MetaboLight partnered up with EWB UCL (Engineers Without Borders University College London) for a third time and held two sessions for a total of 60 year 10 students, introducing them to near infrared spectroscopy and how we can use light to measure our brain oxygenation and metabolism!
MetaboLight member Nico lead the sessions, which kicked off with an electronics session followed by a demonstration of our miniaturized hospital equipment that measures brain oxygenation and metabolism.
The students were all extremely obedient and attentive, and we can respectfully say that we enjoyed teaching them as much as they enjoyed the session! We hope these activities would not only exposed them to this uprising technology, but introduce them into the world of science and perhaps grow into future leaders in STEM fields.
