  • Women In Engineering Program (WIEP) Innovation to Reality (I2R) Outreach Program

    • On April 23rd Lyles-Porter Hall was host to almost 40 middle-schoolers participating in the Women In Engineering Program (WIEP) Innovation to Reality (I2R) Outreach Program. To complement this year’s program theme, “Engineering Life Solutions for those with Differing Abilities,” Josh Alexander with the help of undergraduate and graduate students in audiology organized a special session on “Engineering in Audiology.” Program participants learned about Audiology as a profession and the different ways that engineering plays a critical role in diagnostics, treatment, and research. Participants rotated through hands-on stations that gave them opportunities to meet a young man with a cochlear implant, to wear a pair of hearing aids, to see various hearing assistive technologies in action, and to experience diagnostic procedures in the MD Steer Audiology Clinic. Special thanks to Delaney Hake, Avia Lowe, Claire Maesaka, Brittany Mok, Lauren Monteith, Catherine Nash, Bre Oakes, Amy Eapen, Kristen Wade, and Sarah Shipe who made this a fun and informative event for all involved.
