Creating a Pipeline into Biomedical Engineering In an effort to respond to the lacking diversity in the STEM fields and worker shortage,the ERC- has developed a series of impactful educational outreach activities.These include short term (one-day) workshops, multi-week experiences aimed at improvingoverall scientific understanding. These experiences provide students with hands on researchexperiences in university laboratories working alongside University faculty and principalinvestigators. Other examples include a series of demonstrations as a part of Black FamilyTechnology Awareness Week, highlighting research areas within the ERC- aswell as other bioengineering concepts. This paper will describe the education and outreachactivities and their impact on students' likelihood to pursue a career in engineering.
