How does MRI work? IEEE Region 2 Women in Engineering (WIE) Fireside Science "Chats" Go Global!

Have you ever been to the hospital and had to get an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)? The giant machine is able to see your organs and tissues using magnetism. How does it do that?

Join IEEE R2 WIE's Fireside Science Chat with Dr. Susan Eskin to find out!

Dr. Eskin is an Assistant Teaching Professor of Physics at Penn State Harrisburg and she will be explaining how MRI works and how it can be used to study the human body, the brain, and many more. MRI combines science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to create medical images.

The Zoom virtual meeting is targeted to middle and high schoolers – all are welcome!  Free.

The Fireside Science Chats was started by Chang Liu, IEEE R2 Leader, to engage middle and high school students in China during the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020. The success of these lectures inspired IEEE R2 WIE to engage with students all across the globe.
