Arduino Tutoring Session


Understanding the mechanisms, specifically coding and engineering, behind Arduino.


We learned about the wonderful world of Arduino as a potential tool to facilitate our modeling process. Arduino can be interfaced with a computer and bioreactor to control output (e.g. motor) and receive input (e.g. response data). Edwin at City College taught us the basics and gave us tools to further our understanding.

Early Concept Exploration


With the Makers Project delineated and possible mechanisms in mind, the group started toying around with the idea of shear strain and stress as a way to upgrade and/or further explore the details of in vitro cardiac tissue engineering.
