Biomedical Engineering and Me (iBEAM)

IBBME Biomedical Engineering and Me (iBEAM) student outreach

IBBME Biomedical Engineering and Me (iBEAM) is a summer outreach program designed to excite students entering Grades 7, 8 and 9 about applying science and technology to address modern health-care challenges.

Participants will have the opportunity to interact with our professors and graduate students and learn about tissue engineering, medical devices and more via hands-on activities in a one-day field trip during the summer months at U of T.

Please refer to our sample schedule for an overview of two different full-day activities.

Program Availability

iBEAM works with program facilitators to identify dates in June, July, or August that are suitable to host a group of students.

We also host one to two-hour, hands-on activities at U of T during the school year—ask us!
