In Day 3, the students continue building their first models of the biosensors. Once completed, they test out their newly-built biosensor with spoiled milk and evaluate their design. The students then start designing their second prototype. At the end, then discussed and reevaluated their biosensor model to the whole class.
This nanoBIO node workshop is a one week intensive high school Workshop on biosensors led by Kaustubh Bhalerao from the department of Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Illinois.
Kaustubh Bhalerao obtained his M.S. and Ph.D degrees from Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering at The Ohio State University in 2001 and 2004 respectively. His doctoral dissertation was on the reliability of micro electromechanical systems used in biological applications (BioMEMS). He is an associate professor and has been a faculty member in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering since 2005.
