AND breaking down barriers for girls and women of the future.
Submitted by Leila Knetsch, TDSB.
Interview done by Gr. 11 student Amy Cao from Albert Campbell CI
Amy is a student of Leila Knetsch, her Biology teacher. Amy called up the university, asked for the name of a female biomedical engineer and went downtown and did this interview. I think that that shows a lot of initiative from my student and I think that people (students and teachers) can benefit from hearing about what different scientists are doing, especially in the area of biomedical engineering, which is garnering a lot of interest amongst students, especially young women.
