EWH is committed to inspiring future generations of biomedical engineers to take on the challenges of healthcare technology in the developing world.

While much of our work is with university students, we have also developed a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teaching program with curricula designed for different settings, ages, and program lengths. Our teaching programs, funded by Biogen Idec Foundation, are designed to foster students’ enthusiasm for STEM fields and raise awareness of global healthcare needs.


New Program and Activities for 2015

In cooperation with the Engineering Place at N.C. State University, EWH is currently developing new design-based engineering inquiry activities for 2015. We are also expanding our biomedical engineering outreach in the Research Triangle region through activity development and teacher training. We will offer free training sessions and supply STEM kits at cost to interested educators in the region. We are currently finalizing curricula and training schedules and need your input! Please fill out the form below, and you will be contacted with updates soon.

Current Activities and other programs:

EWH offers all of its activity sheets and supply lists for free through our website. In some cases, we offer prepared supply Kits that can be purchased to simplify presenting an EWH STEM activity. Follow these links to view the activities:

EWH also partners with Girls Engineering Change, a program that works with Girl Scouts and other girls' groups to encourage the pursuit of STEM education and careers.

EWH STEM programs introduce challenges in healthcare delivery in developing countries and demonstrate through hands-on learning how science, technology, engineering and math can help to solve these global challenges.
