Andrew Merryweather gives lecture to SLCSE group

On February 28th, Dr. Andrew Merryweather, an Assistant Professor in the University of Utah’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, volunteered to give a presentation to the MESA club (high school students) at the Salt Lake Center for Science Education. His topic, “Rehabilitation Ergonomics and Biomechanics: Designing a Better Tomorrow” was directly related to a recent project where the students had designed, built, and tested prosthetic limbs. The students especially enjoyed Andrew’s video highlighting the WheelsUp Program, where the gift of flight is given to the physically disabled through paragliding, hang gliding, and ultralight flying.┬áThis event was sponsored by the Sports ‘n Science program at the CSME.
