Students were presented a challenge – use 1 piece of paper and Elmer’s glue to design something to support a textbook, 5 textbooks, or a person!

As the Outreach Coordinator for the UF Chapter of the Society for Biomaterials, Ph.D. student Bryan James designed a classroom lesson geared towards middle school students about osseous (bone) biomaterials. The lesson is the chapter’s entry for the Society for Biomaterials national competition, the Biomaterials Education Challenge. Bryan gave the lesson at the PK Yonge Developmental Research School at the University of Florida to a classroom of 7th graders.
