Senior Biomedical Engineering student Allison Edwards shows an exploded view of a wireless body temperature sensor design judges at this year’s University of Arizona Engineering Design Day on the UA mall on April 29, 2019 in Tucson, AZ. The sensor, housed in a small plastic housing will attach to a chemotherapy port worn beneath the skin. The sensor will allow the patient to monitor their body temperature in real time on a cell phone. Engineering student teams demonstrated 118 inventions with 616 UA seniors presenting their capstone design projects to industry sponsors, judges and the public.
