Bowman Creek Project

Prof. Ardekani's Biological and Complex Fluids Laboratory initiates an interdisciplinary engineering education partnership with the Engineering and Technology Magnet Program for the South Bend Community School Corporation that focuses on restoring an aquatic ecosystem of a local creek.

  • The project is highlighted on the college of engineering website and South Bend Tribune.
  • You can access the data gathered by Riley high school students on Bowman Creek Project website.
  • If you are interested in the Bowman Creek research opportunity click here. For more information contact Emily Gore.
  • Ardekani's Biological and Complex Fluids Laboratory organizes tours of ND College of Engineering laboratories for Riley High School students.

Women in Engineering Program: For Your Imagination

Ardekani's Biological and Complex Fluids Laboratory organized educational activities for 6th-9th graders participating in WIEP (For Your Imagination program) event.

  • We designed hands-on activities to simulate the cleanup of an oil spill with and without injection of dispersants. Students learned about use of booms (using straws), skimmers (using cosmetic sponges) and adsorbent materials (using cotton balls and paper towel strips) in the process of removing oil from the water surface.
  • Other educational activities focused on building a swimming robot that can successfully move in a very viscous fluid such as corn syrup. As a part of this program, the students learned about bacterial flagella and their swimming behavior.
