Outreach: Hydrogels!

October 1, 2016


The Society for Biomaterials at UF participated in an outreach event through Tau Beta Pi's GatorTRAX program. At this event, Gainesville area elementary and middle school students learned about Hydrogel properties and diffusion. SFB used Gelatin (Jell-O) as our model hydrogel system to explain why different types of hydrogels are used in different parts of the body. Students also learned about diffusion and how mesh size can affect medicine diffusion from hydrogels. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make this event possible!
