This challenge is an extension of the popular Clever Cogs Engineering Challenge, which is part of the BAE Systems and Girlguiding North West England Partnership and is themed around Biomedical Engineering.
Biomedical Engineering is a type of engineering which solves problems in a medical environment. Biomedical Engineers use their technological background and problem-solving skills to improve or invent medical technology to make people better when they get sick or help people who have an impairment.
This Clever Cogs Challenge is a little shorter than the previous packs; you should be able to complete this challenge pack in one or two unit meetings. Each activity will give you a taste of a different kind of engineering that you might find within the field of biomedical engineering. After each activity you’ll read about some incredible female engineers who have achieved something amazing in their field!
We’d love to see your creations! Ask your leader for some help taking some photos as you complete the activities and share them on social media using the hashtags #CleverCogs and #GGNWE. Make sure you gain permission of anyone in your photos before posting! This is a fun badge, not a qualification, therefore a flexible approach is required. As long as you have taken a full and active part in the challenge, then you should receive your badge.
