One of the core missions EWH strives to accomplish is to inspire future generations of biomedical engineers to take on the unique challenges in healthcare technology in the developing world.

In partnership with the Biogen Foundation, EWH has developed a series of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curricula which are free to the public to use.

The online materials below are free to use. If you would like to purchase a kit containing all of the materials, printed lesson plans, and student handouts for the lesson, follow the order link
