Quarterly Design Projects (QDP)
Our Quarterly Design Projects (QDPs) occur every Fall and Spring quarter and are open to students of all years and majors. Our members are split into multidisciplinary teams of 5-8 students and are challenged to design and prototype a solution to a biomedical issue.
The QDP attracts 70-100 participants each quarter with 10-16 teams. Teams meet during our general meetings, Tuesday’s 6:10-7:00pm, and present their solutions at the end of the quarter. The winning team of the Fall QDP has the opportunity to continue their project throughout the rest of the year as a Formal Design Project.
Prompt: Design and (if possible) prototype new PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
More comfortable/adjustable face mask designs, convenient hand sanitizer holders, compact/comfortable face shields, etc.
Specific prompt will be announced during our second general meeting (9/22)
Sign up is open until the end of our third meeting (9/29)
