EWH Design Project Meetings

Hello Everyone,

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who came out to the kit building session on Thursday. It was a great success. However, there will be no kit building session on September 26th.

Now moving on to new business. We are going to have our first meeting for the Sterilizer tester on Tuesday, September 24th at 5pm in SEL 4018. The sterilizer tester is a low cost device for testing steam sterilizers. The device will also measure the actual temperature reached inside the chamber, as well as how long that temperature has been maintained. The schematic for this device is available to us, and can be built and tested for further improvement.

In addition, the first meeting for the Stand Alone surgical lamp will be on Wednesday, September 25th at 5pm in SEL 4018. The stand-alone surgical lamp is an inexpensive lamp made out of LEDs and foldable sheet of metal, powered by batteries or supercapacitors. It will consist of basic use of resistors and capacitors, ideal for underclassmen.

For both of these projects, students will be collaborating with undergraduates, graduates, and PhD students. You do not need to have any experience.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (tjatla2@uic.edu). I look forward to seeing you on Tuesdayand/or Wednesday.

Thanks & Regards,
Tanvi
