You may have to read that subject line a few times! Sound like a famous movie? Scientists in Hong Kong have created a shapeshifter robot that can switch between liquid and solid states using a unique metal infused with magnetic particles. The scientists hope the invention will help revolutionize the biomedical industry, like being used for drug delivery or removing foreign objects from the body.
We shared this article about a new biotech training center coming to Northeast Houston at San Jacinto College a few weeks ago. The college says the center “will offer students hands-on experience in a pilot-scale bioprocessing center that includes upstream, downstream, and fill-finish facilities, as well as specific curriculum in cell and gene therapy and other innovative and developing industry sectors.”
With innovations like these, the availability of more college courses, and a focus to help support biotech and biomedical education, the employment and inventive needs specific to these issues and industries can be built and sustained right here in Greater Houston.
We should always look for new and innovative methods beyond current solutions. Advancements like these are why the curriculum on our Collab-Lab addresses social-emotional development while bolstering positive child outcomes through STEM activities. Our Centers of Excellence use a 21st-century learning framework grounded in a comprehensive research-based curriculum that stresses STEM learning. Getting our future workforce to start thinking and solving biomedical and biotech issues is imperative to improving our future.
As leaders in early childhood education for more than 35 years, Collaborative for Children’s goal is to ready young children for school and the 21st century with innovative programs focused on positive outcomes.
