With only two weeks left, COVID-19 Hackathon over, Rube Goldberg Machines created, CAD lessons done, I found myself starving for a meaningful activity for my Engineering for Social Good class. Then I remembered my father!
Last month my father had Cochlear Implant surgery. I quickly called him and conducted this interview where he described his surgery, and challenged my students to build a case to fit his implant when he removes it during the day (Disclaimer: He already has a case, but i figured this tiny little lie was a good keeping in mind the greater good :).
