Series/Report no.:Ohio State University. STEP Expo. Spring 2020
I spent my STEP grant to volunteer in the Injury and Biomechanics Research Center during the summer of 2019. I observed many projects that involved postmortem human subjects and investigated the mechanics of injury in the human body. I learned scientific skills and got the opportunity to see the research process firsthand. Some of the skills taught included setting up high speed cameras, placing strain gauges and handling bio-hazardous waste. There were also bi-weekly student meetings. These provided an opportunity to discuss current projects and to practice research presentations.
