  • Jan. 31, 2009 - Students and staff of the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems set up a booth at the Engineering Expo 2009. This was an opportunity to showcase Engineering as a vehicle for the integration of science and math in ways that connect youngsters to the joys, challenges, and relevance of a future in engineering. Activities at our booth included an interactive posture test, a demonstration of functional electrical stimulation, video clips from our three-dimensional motion analysis systems, and activity worksheets relating to neurophysiology.
